172. Near-term applications of plasma accelerators
- Alex Murokh (RadiaBeam Technologies, LLC.)
- Jeroen van Tilborg (LBNL)
The goal of this 30-minute session is to invite and engage the Snowmass community in a discussion on near-term applications of plasma-based accelerators. Several short presentations will cover plasma-based sources of X-rays, electron beams, and protons, among others, followed by ample time for discussions. The emphasis of the flash presentations should cover the “application space” of these novel sources, or in other words “What do these plasma sources bring to the science users that is not already available with alternative technologies?”. And closely related to this question, “What near-term research should be carried out on plasma-based radiation sources that could further strengthen this role as unique and desirable source?”.
