  A European proposal is under preparation for the Compton gamma-ray Source of ELI-NP. In the Romanian pillar of ELI (the European Extreme Light Infrastructure) an advanced gamma-ray beam is foreseen, coupled to two 10 PW laser systems. The photons will be generated by Compton back-scattering in the collision between a high quality electron beam and a high power laser. A European collaboration formed by INFN, Univ. of Roma La Sapienza, Orsay-LAL of IN2P3, Univ. de Paris Sud XI and ASTeC at Daresbury, is preparing a TDR exploring the feasibility of a machine expected to achieve the Gamma-ray beam specifications: energy tunable between 1 and 20 MeV, narrow bandwidth (0.3%) and high spectral density, 104 photons/sec/eV. We will describe the lay-out of the 720 MeV RF Linac and the collision laser with the associated optical cavity, as well as the optimized beam dynamics to achieve maximum phase space density at the collision, taking into account beam loading and beam break-up due to the acceleration of long bunch trains. The predicted gamma-ray spectra will be evaluated as the gamma photons collimators background. An option for electron bunches recirculation will also be illustrated.

  At the SPARC-LAB facility of INFN-LNF we are installing two transport lines for ultra-short electron bunches and an ultra-intense laser pulses, generated by the SPARC photo-injector and by the FLAME laser in a synchronized fashion at the tens of fs level, to co-propagate inside a hydrogen filled glass capillary, in order to perform acceleration of the electron bunch by a plasma wave driven by the laser pulse. The main aim of this experiment is to demonstrate that a high brightness electron beam can be accelerated by a plasma wave without any significant degradation of its quality. A 10 pC electron bunch, 10 fs long is produced by SPARC and transported to injection into the capillary, which is 100 micron wide, at a gas density around 5*1017 ne/cm3 . The laser pulse, 25 fs long, focused down to 30 microns into the capillary is injected ahead of the bunch, drives a weakly non-linear plasma wave with wavelength of about 120 microns. A proper phasing of the two pulses allows acceleration of electrons from the injection energy of 150 MeV up to about 1 GeV for a 10 cm long capillary. Installation of the beam lines is foreseen by the end of 2012 and first tests starting in mid 2013.
