Abstract

Here we investigate the wakefield acceleration induced by a coherent, ultrashort X-ray pulse guided by a nano-scale channel inside a solid material via particlein- cell simulations. Besides the huge acceleration gradient of TeV/cm, this scheme can also induce the emission of high energy photons at ∼O(10-100) MeV and improve significantly the emittance of the energitc electrons.
