Abstract

An ultra-intense laser injected 15 J of power at 1.053 μm in 0.5 ps into a glass capillary of 1 cm in length and 60 μm in diameter and accelerated plasma electrons to an energy of 100 MeV. 1- and 2-dimensional particle codes show that a laser wakefield is excited with a gradient of 10 GV/m, accelerating the electrons. The blue shift of the transmitted laser impies that the plasma density is in a range of 1016 cm-3 inside the capillary. A bump at the high energy tail suggests the electron trapping in the wakefield.
