Abstract: Novel accelerator schemes are rapidly emerging in the wake of laser-plasma acceleration research and involve advanced high-power laser drivers for their operation. Significant progress has been made in laser performance during the past decade, including repetition rate, average and peak power, and footprint, making these systems attractive for many applications, including novel accelerators. Here we discuss laser driver requirements for the proposed novel accelerator schemes, examine emerging technologies and introduce a viable laser driver concept for a first generation of plasma accelerators.
