Talk Title:  “Accelerator on a Chip: Recent Progress (700MeV/m) A Path to TeV Energy Scale Physics and Table Top Coherent X-rays”

Abstract:

Dielectric Laser Accelerators, accelerators on a chip, offer a new approach to the next generation of accelerators.  The recently demonstrated gradient of 700MeV/m is a first step toward an accelerator on-a-chip fabricated using modern lithographic methods. Accelerators on a chip enable attosecond physics from the XUV to X-ray region and open the possibility of TeV energy scale physics in the future
