We present results of an experiment where two independent Laser-Plasma-Accelerator (LPA) stages are coupled at a short distance by a plasma mirror. Changing the arrival time of the electron beam with respect to the second-stage laser pulse allowed reconstruction of the temporal field structure and determination of the plasma density. Injection into the wakefield of the second stage was verified by a 100 MeV energy gain of the electron beam.
