Abstract

The electron beam generated in a self-modulated laser wakefield accelerator is characterized. It was observed to have a multi-component beam profile and its energy distribution undergoes discrete transitions as the laser power or plasma density is varied. In addition, dark spots that form regular modes were observed in the electron beam profile.
