State-of-the-Art Beams from Table-Top Accelerators

Berkeley Lab’s lead in laser plasma acceleration research continues with new benchmarks for electron beam quality Part One: Focusing in on beam focus The rapidly evolving technology of laser plasma accelerators (LPAs) – called “table-top accelerators” because their length can … Continue reading
