Oxford Physicists Line Up Laser Pulses To Drive Plasma Wakefields

Oxford Physicists Line Up Laser Pulses To Drive Plasma Wakefields

A team led by Professor Simon Hooker's group at Oxford have shown that very compact particle accelerators could be driven by trains of laser pulses travelling through a plasma (an ionized gas). This work illustrates the potential for efficient plasma accelerators operating at much higher pulse repetition rates than possible to date.
