Cockcroft Institute scientists create compact particle accelerators which drive electrons to near the speed of light at 100 times higher frequency

Scientists from the Cockcroft Institute have successfully developed a pocket-sized particle accelerator capable of projecting ultra-short electron beams with laser light at more than 99.99% of the speed of light. To achieve this result, the researchers, led by Lancaster and Manchester

Trojan horse paves the way to brighter, more compact electron accelerators

A team of researchers led by the Cockcroft Institute’s Professor Bernard Hidding (University of Strathclyde) has developed a ground breaking technique that could produce an electron beam up to 10,000 times brighter than the most powerful beams today. Known as the ‘E-210: Trojan Horse’
