Ti:sapphire laser drives accelerator on chip

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
An advance that uses commercial lasers and low-cost mass-production techniques could set the stage for a generation of “tabletop” particle accelerators that are less expensive for use in science and medicine. Current state-of-the-art accelerators use microwaves to boost the energy of electrons. Researchers have sought more economical alternatives, and this new technique, which uses ultrafast lasers to drive the accelerator, is a leading candidate. A team that included scientists from the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University used a device powered...Read full article
