Abstract: In this paper we summarize the contributions presented during the Working Group 7 (WG7) sessions, dedicated to high brightness power sources. In this context we have tackled several topics of high relevance to novel accelerators, including laser technology for laser driven accelerators, the state of the art of high peak and average power lasers, the laser beam quality, contrast and stability. A number of novel results were presented especially in the area of laser beam characterization and control, advanced laser concepts, target control and electron beam diagnostics currently under development at a range of labs engaged in the development of advanced accelerator concepts.
