Title: Betatron radiation and emittance growth in plasma wakefield accelerators

Abstract

Beam-driven plasma wakefield acceleration (PWFA) has demonstrated great progress during the past two decades of research. The novel Facility for Advanced Accelerator Experimental Tests (FACET) II, currently under construction, will provide 10 GeV electron beams with unprecedented parameters for the next generation of PWFA experiments. In the context of the FACET II facility, we introduce simulation results on expected betatron radiation and its potential application to diagnose emittance preservation and hosing instability in the upcoming PWFA experiments.
