Electrical engineers at TU Darmstadt have developed a concept for a tiny, laser-driven electron accelerator. Applications in medicine and industry are conceivable.
The new particle accelerator should be so small. Accordingly, it could be produced in large quantities in a cost-effective manner.

Smaller, lighter, more affordable: In electrical engineering, completely new possibilities can open up if scientists are (more…)
