    Scientists create compact particle accelerators that drive

    Scientists have successfully developed a pocket-sized particle accelerator capable of projecting ultra-short electron beams with laser light at more than 99.99% of the speed of light.

    Free-electron laser

    A free-electron laser (FEL) is a (fourth generation) synchrotron light source producing extremely brilliant and short pulses of synchrotron radiation. An FEL functions and behaves in many ways like a laser, but instead of using stimulated emission from atomic or molecular excitations, it employs relativistic electrons as a gain medium.

    Compton recoil effects in staging of laser wakefield accelerators

    Laser plasma accelerators capable of generating >10 GeV electron beams may require plasma mirrors to remove undepleted laser energy at the end of each accelerator stage.

    Laser-driven electron beam and radiation sources for basic

    Relativistic electron beams from ultraintense laser plasma interactions can be conceived to be compact particle accelerators, inspiring a wide range of applications of unique particle beam and radiation sources as well as downsizing large-scale particle accelerators such as radiation sources of THz, 18) betatron X-ray radiation, 19) X-ray free

    Laser electron accelerator - NASA/ADS

    An intense electromagnetic pulse can create weak plasma oscillations through the action of the nonlinear ponderomotive force. Electrons trapped in the wake can be accelerated to high energy. Existing glass lasers of power density 10 to the 18th W/sq cm shone on plasmas of densities 10 to the 18th/cu cm can yield gigaelectronvolts of electron energy per centimeter of acceleration distance. This

    ELectron Beam Accelerator for fundamental sciences

    The ELI-ELBA project, being a part of the RP2 Research Program “Radiation Physics and Electron Acceleration”, focuses on the experimental and theoretical studies of nonlinear coherent wave structures formed in a laser plasma for the creation of compact electron accelerators.

    Laser-driven particle accelerator creates pairs of electron

    High-power laser pulses are at the heart of a particle-accelerator concept known as laser wakefield acceleration. When such a pulse is focused onto a gas jet, its wavefront detaches electrons from the gas molecules to form a plasma and its oscillating electric field then creates a plasma wave on which some electrons can surf and gain energy.
