"Experiments using the high intensity 20GeV electron beam in the FACET Facility at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have produced a number of exceptional results. Most recently acceleration of a witness bunch in a pre-ionized plasma was observed. Energy doubling in beam ionized noble gas plasmas and the generation of high-brightness beams through ionization injection will also be discussed. GeV/m beam driven wakefields have also been measured in dielectric wakefield accelerator structures. FACET operates as a National User Facility delivering unique beams to a diverse community of users. Ideas to evolve the FACET facility targeting ultra-high gradient acceleration, high-brightness beam generation and extreme intensity mono-energetic gamma-ray beams will be presented."
