BELLA Experiment Produces First Electron Beams

A new facility designed to apply the BELLA Center’s laser-plasma accelerator techniques produced its first electron beams on April 11 as part of the Hundred Terawatt Thomson-scattering experiment, or HTT, to enable a compact, nearly monoenergetic source of mega-electron-volt photons. The long-term goal of the HTT is to develop a technology that can safely and quickly detect nuclear material hidden within large objects, such as shipping containers. More>
