- September 1st, 2016 - An ERC starting grant has been awarded to a researcher at LOA, Sebastien Corde, on the development of a novel plasma particle acceleration technology . As we push the frontier of particle physics to higher particle energies, conventional accelerator techniques are attaining their limits and new concepts are emerging. The use of an ionized gas —or plasma— circumvents the most significant barrier of... read more | Read more news
