Advanced diagnostics are essential tools in the development of plasma-based accelerators. The accurate measurement of the quality of beams at the exit of the plasma channel is crucial and will help also to optimize the parameters of the plasma accelerator. 6D electron beam diagnostics will be reviewed with emphasis on emittance measurement, which is particularly complex due to large energy...

Probe-beam system is a powerful diagnostics tool providing detailed information about the evolution of the laser-plasma interaction. After the description of such probe-beam setup, the presentation will show recent results of several optical probing campaigns on laser-driven electron acceleration.

The conservation of the quality of beams externally injected into - or extracted from - a plasma accelerator stage is very challenging, mainly due to the huge focusing forces inside the plasma. In particular, a proper matching of the beam is mandatory to prevent irreversible emittance spoiling. We will summarize the underlying beam dynamics and discuss practical methods envisaged to fight...
