The volume presents a selection of articles based on lectures held at the LPA Summer School, an event that focuses on advanced schemes for plasma-based particle acceleration and radiation sources, and which brings together researchers from the conventional accelerator community and from the high-intensity laser-matter interaction research field. Training in these fields is highly relevant for the field of ultraintense lasers and applications, which has enjoyed dramatic growth following the development of major European infrastructures like the Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) and the EuPRAXIA project.
The manuscripts maintain the tutorial character of the lectures and reflect the latest advances in the respective research fields. The volume is mainly intended for PhD students and young researchers getting started in this research area, but also for other scientists interested in the latest developments in this field. Lastly, the content may also interest radiobiologists, as it includes contributions on potential applications of laser-based particle accelerators.
