The potential of laser-plasma-accelerators for space radiation testing of electronics is explored. Both fields, laser-plasma-acceleration on the one hand and space radiation testing on the other are highly vibrant fields, which have been disjunct so far. However, there are a multitude of aspects which suggests that laser-plasma-accelerators could be highly relevant future radiation sources for the space radiation testing industry. It is the goal of this study to connect both fields and to introduce laser-plasma-accelerators as complementary radiation sources for improved space radiation testing.
