Welcome to the home page for the E-162 experiment at SLAC. Take a look at our news page for the most recent updates.
The E-162 experiment at SLAC is a continuation of the E-157 experiment. We aim to extend high-gradient plasma wakefield acceleration from the mm-scale to the m-scale. An accelerating gradient of up to 1 GeV/m will be induced in a 1.4 m long plasma module using the high power SLAC linac beam. The experiment will measure decelaration, acceleration and transverse focusing of the injected bunch.
