abstract: To obtain a high quality electron beam with small energy spread in the laser driven plasma accelerator, the electrons have to be prebunched at the scale of the plasma wavelength. We study the feasibility of an experiment where an inverse free electron laser (IFEL) is used to bunch the electron beam before the injection into a plasma beatwave accelerator. It is suggested to drive the IFEL prebuncher by a THz seed radiation phase-locked to the electromagnetic beatwave through difference frequency generation process in a nonlinear crystal. Design and numerical simulations for this experiment are presented.
