Abstract

The ability to guide high-energy femtosecond scale lasers while augmenting their energy is crucial in future laser based TeV particle accelerators where the laser energy depletion is the major setback. We propose, analyze, and experimentally demonstrate consolidating multiple femtosecond pulse lasers in coupled curved capillaries. We demonstrate a proof of principle scheme of coupled curved capillaries where two femtosecond laser pulses are combined. Furthermore, we show simulations that demonstrate that high-intensity short pulse lasers can be guided within a small curvature radius capillary.
