Abstract
Practical meaningful mono-energetic laser accelerator requires the electron bunch to be within a small proportion of the period of the accelerating field. By two laser accelerator schemes, we exemplify how the emerging picosecond terawatt (ps-TW) CO2 laser technology helps to satisfy this requirement. These include: a staged electron laser accelerator (STELLA) experiment, which is being conducted at the Brookhaven Accelerator Test Facility (ATF), and a prospective laser wakefield accelerator (LWFA), where ps-TW CO2 laser may offer noticeable advantages over more conventional T3 solid-state lasers.
