In 2018 the first Laser Wakefield Acceleration campaign took place at the Helmholtz-Institute Jena with the JETi-200 laser-system. When travelling through the plasma and exciting a plasma wave, the pump pulse can get scattered at plasma structures depending on the pump pulse’s evolution inside the plasma, the pump pulse‘s chirp and the plasma electron‘s density.
This (stimulated) Raman Side Scattering was investigated using Few-Cycle Microscopy on a micrometre scale.
First results and a preliminary analysis of the observed side scattering will be presented.
