We report on laser-driven electron acceleration with 8 fs, i.e. three optical cycles, pulse duration and 40 mJ energy. Theory and numerical simulations predict that this experimentally unexplored parameter range is relevant for laser wake-field acceleration. The electron spectra produced are monoenergetic with a peak up to 50 MeV and free of low-energy electrons with thermal spectrum. The electron beam has a typical divergence of 5–10 mrad. The accelerator is routinely operated at 10 Hz and correspondingly it is a promising source for several applications. To cite this article: L. Veisz et al., C. R. Physique 10 (2009).

On présente l’accélération laser d’électrons à l’aide d’implusions laser de 8 fs, ce qui représente 3 cycles optiques, et de 40 mJ seulement. La théorie et les simulations numériques prédisent que ce domaine vierge expérimentalement est pertinent pour l’accélération laser par champ de sillage. Le spectre des électrons produit est monoénergétique avec un pic atteignant 50 MeV et exempt d’une composante thermique de basse énergie. Le faisceau d’électrons a typiquement une divergence de 5–10 mrad. L’accélération se fait à 10 Hz de façon routinière et apparaît donc comme une source prometteuse pour diverses applications. Pour citer cet article : L. Veisz et al., C. R. Physique 10 (2009).
