 - April 10th, 2017 - laser-plasma accelerators demonstrated with high repetition rate and compact laser systems (Nature Photonics) Laser–plasma acceleration is an emerging technique for accelerating electrons to high energies over very short distances. The accelerated electron bunches have femtosecond duration, making them particularly relevant for applications such as ultrafast imaging or femtosecond X-ray generation.
