Researchers from UCLA and the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have shown that a promising technique for accelerating electrons on waves of plasma is efficient enough to power a new generation of shorter, more economical accelerators. This could greatly expand their use in areas such as medicine, national security, industry and high-energy physics…
