  Present work in Laser Plasma Accelerators focuses on a single laser pulse driving a non-linear wake in a plasma. Such single pulse regimes require ever increasing laser power in order to excite ever increasing wake amplitudes. Such high intensity pulses can be limited by instabilities as well engineering restrictions and experimental constraints on optics. Alternatively we present a look at resonantly driving plasmas using a laser pulse train. In particular we compare analytic, numerical and VORPAL simulation results to characterize a proposed experiment to measure the wake resonantly driven by four Gaussian laser pulses. The current progress depicts the interaction of 4 CO2 laser pulses, λlaser = 10.6μm, of 3 ps full width at half max- imum (FWHM) length separated peak-to-peak by 18 ps, each of normalized vector potential a0 ≃ 0.7. Results con- firm previous discourse (*,**) and show, for a given laser pro- file, an accelerating field on the order of 900 MV/m, for a plasma satisfying the resonant condition, ωp=π/tfwhm.

  Coherent electron cooling (CEC) is considered to be on of potential candidates capable of cooling high-energy, high-intensity hadron beams to very small emittances. It also has a potential to significantly boost luminosity of high-energy hadron-hadron and electron-hadron colliders. In a CEC system, a perturbation of the electron density caused by a hadron is amplified and fed back to the hadrons to reduce the energy spread and the emittance of the beam. Following the funding decision by DoE office of Nuclear Physics, we are designing and building coherent electron cooler for a proof-of-principle experiment at RHIC to cool 40 GeV heavy ion beam. In this paper, we describe the layout of the CeC installed into IP2 interaction region at RHIC. We present the design of the CeC cooler and results of preliminary simulations.
