    A continuous wave (cw) optical power of 108 mW was coupled into a polarization maintaining fiber from a high power distributed feed back (DFB) laser at 1550 nm wavelength. The laser also displays excellent high temperature performance, low noise, and narrow linewidth, which makes it very...

    In this paper we consider a scheme for laser driven electron acceleration in which a short intense laser pulse travels along a hollow tube, ionizing and heating the walls as it goes. Hot electrons expanding off the walls produce a large negative potential behind the pulse and the resulting...
