Title: Direct Measurement of Focusing Fields in Active Plasma Lenses

Abstract: Active plasma lenses have the potential to enable broad-ranging applications of plasma-based accelerators owing to their compact design and radially symmetric kT/m-level focusing fields, facilitating beam-quality preservation and compact beam transport. We report on the direct measurement of magnetic field gradients in active plasma lenses and demonstrate their impact on the emittance of a charged particle beam. This is made possible by the use of a well-characterized electron beam with 1.4mmmrad normalized emittance from a conventional accelerator. Field gradients of up to 823T/m are investigated. The observed emittance evolution is supported by numerical simulations, which demonstrate the conservation of the core beam emittance in such a plasma lens setup.
