  Electron beam injection triggered by intense ultrashort laser pulses, which is called as plasma cathode, is presented. We have studied generation of relativistic electrons by interaction between a high intensity ultra-short laser pulse and gas jet. When a static magnetic field of 0.2 T is applied, the modification of the preplasma cavity, and significant enhancement of emittance and an increase of the total charge of electron beams produced by a 12 TW, 40 fs laser pulse tightly focused in a He gas jet, were observed. And very high stability and reproducibility of the characteristics and position of well-collimated electron beams was detected. Now we are planning to experiment with a magnetic circuit that has more intense magnetic field of 1 T. The present report aims at presenting these experimental and analytical results.

  Laser plasma accelerator can recently generate monochromatic and low-emittanced electron bunchs. Its pulse duration is femtoseconds, 40fs by the PIC simulation and about 250fs by measurement at University of Tokyo. But in such measurements only time-averaged spectrum and pulse duration were obtained by a few bolometers and coherent transition radiation (CTR) interferometer. Since the electron generation and acceleration are not stable yet, we need to know shot-by-shot behavior to improve its mechanism. Here we introduce the polychromator with ten channel-sensors for the single shot measurement. By this polychromator, we can obtain such a discrete spectrum of CTR by a single shot, thus the bunch duration can also be obtained shot-by-shot. This polychromator has ten channels to observe infrared radiation, and is mainly sensitive for the wavelengths around 1~2mm. We select this range of wavelength as the measurement tool, because the electron bunch duration changes shot-by-shot during traveling along the distance between the plasma and Ti foil (CTR emitter) due to their energy spectrum fluctuation. Further results and discussion will be presented on the spot.
