First comparisons between measurements and simulations are discussed for the PITZ1.5 facility. In particular, dedicated PARMELA simulations performed using the realistic laser pulse hitting the cathode are compared to first emittance measurements performed with the SPARC e-meter and with the EMSY system. Measured energy spectra are compared to simulations, as well. It is discussed the overall good agreement between calculations and measurements. 4115 4116 M. Boscolo et al.
