We discuss the use of high power laser-generated THz waves for acceleration and electron beam phase space manipulation. These find application both as a compact alternative for radiofrequency-based accelerators as well for high frequency manipulation of electron beam longitudinal phase spaces and beam compression. We’ll present our different approaches to reach next goal in THz acceleration which is to demonstrate MeV energy gain from laser-driven THz waves.
