Ultrafast Non-Paraxial Abruptly Autofocusing Pulses for High-Gradient Electron Acceleration

Liang Jie Wong, Ido Kaminer

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


We present ultrafast non-paraxial autofocusing pulses that exhibit abrupt, ultra-intense focusing in both space and time. We demonstrate their ability to linearly accelerate electrons with effective gradients exceeding 300 GeV/m, and explore different operation regimes.
