Abstract

A mechanism for high energy γ-photon generation based on laser-plasma accelerator is proposed. The laser pulse with a peak intensity of 1022W/cm2 accelerates the electron beam to GeV by the laser wakefield effect. A solid Aluminium target serves as a plasma mirror which is located at the rear side of a gas jet and reflects the laser pulse. High order harmonics are generated due to the Doppler effect experienced by the incident laser. The collisions of the reflected attosecond pulses and the energetic electron beam provide a large cross section for nonlinear Compton scattering and produce a collimated γ-photon flux. The mechanism generates GeV photons with a pulse duration given by the duration of the electron beam.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2 (a) The electron distributions at 164 T0 is presented in the (x,y) plane. The black and red line represent the profiles of the laser intensity and longitudinal electric field on the laser axis (y = 0). The energy spectra of the total electrons at 144 T0 (green), 164 T0 (blue), 184 T0 (yellow) and 204 T0 (purple) are in the (y,z) plane. The corresponding spectra for the injected electrons are shown in the (x,z) plane. (b) The energy angular distribution of the injected electrons at t = 204 T0. The colorbar represents the number of the particles on logarithm scale.

Fig. 3 (a) and (b) are the electron and ion (Al13+) density evolution of the solid density target. (c) is the frequency power spectrum of the incident and reflected laser field at 20 T0 (black) and 203 T0 (red), respectively.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 (a) The electron density distribution at t = 206 T0 is projected on the (x,y) plane. The corresponding density profiles (on the laser axis) of the electron and γ-photons (normalized to 10 nc) are plotted on the (x,z) plane with red and green lines, respectively. The laser intensity profile is shown with the black line normalized to I0. The negative value indicates that the laser field is reflected and propagating backwards. The energy spectrum evolutions of the γ-photons at 186 T0 (blue), 204 T0 (purple), 206 T0 (cyan), and 212 T0 (yellow) are displayed on the (y,z) plane. (b) The energy angular distribution of the emitted γ-photons at 206 T0. The colorbar represents the number of the photons on logarithm scale.
