The EuPRAXIA@SPARC_LAB User Workshop 2021 will take place online over two full days on October 14th and 15th, 2021.
EuPRAXIA@SPARC_LAB is the project of a FEL light source user facility at the Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati (LNF) in the EuPRAXIA (European Plasma Research Accelerator with eXcellence in Applications) framework: the European project for a next generation plasma accelerator, recently included in the ESFRI 2021 Roadmap Update. This game-changing facility will be able to produce versatile beams for a range of applications at lower costs and smaller footprint than what can be achieved with more conventional radio-frequency accelerators.
The future of this facility at LNF is currently in the process of definition. The preparation of a technical design report is in progress.
The goal of this workshop is to present the target parameters of the EuPRAXIA@SPARC_LAB FELs, lasers and X-ray sources to ensure the best user performances and the complementarity of this unique photon factory in the European scenario.
The workshop is divided in four sections, each one targeting the radiation property ranges, which may be covered by the facility:
• 400-100 eV SASE FEL beamline
• 7-30 eV SEEDED FEL beamline.
• Mid Infrared-Terahertz beamline.
• High intensity solid state laser beams & alternative X-ray sources.
These photon sources could be combined with HHG sources for multidimensional spectroscopy investigations.
