TI - Outcome of the Horizon 2020 Design Study EuPRAXIA for a European Plasma Accelerator Facility J2 - Proc. of IPAC2020, Caen, France, 10-15 May 2020 CY - Caen, France T2 - International Particle Accelerator Conference T3 - 11 LA - english AB - Although plasma accelerators can sustain unmatched accelerating gradients - up to three orders of magnitude beyond what RF-based machines reach - their performance and use in applications is still limited by beam quality, in particular a large inherent energy spread. With the aim to demonstrate user readiness, the EuPRAXIA design study has, since 2015, developed various concepts and techniques to improve electron beam quality, increase machine stability, and study possible applications of plasma accelerators. Consisting of a consortium of 41 laboratories from Europe, Asia and the US, the EuPRAXIA project thus presents the first design of a dedicated multi-GeV electron accelerator research infrastructure based on plasma accelerator technology. This presentation explains some of the technical innovations proposed in the EuPRAXIA design and highlights the general facility concept as well as the possible role of the project within the accelerator landscape.
