Abstract

We present the results from the laserwire system at the Accelerator Test Facility 2 (ATF2) during recent operation after relocation to the virtual image point of the ATF2 final focus. The characterisation of the 150 mJ, 77 ps long laser pulses at a scaled virtual interaction point is used to deconvolve the transverse laserwire profile demonstrating a 1.16 ± 0.06 μm vertical electron beam profile. Horizontal laserwire scans were used in combination with the vertical scans to measure the electron beam size using a full overlap integral model due to the problems presented by a large aspect ratio electron beam.
