The ACHIP research program, generously supported by the Californian Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation with around 20 million euros, has come to an end. ACHIP stands for “Accelerator on a Chip International Program”. It has funded research into this type of laser-based accelerator and allowed us to make great strides forward – these accelerators are now actually working, see earlier reports here. To mark the end of ACHIP, the Moore Foundation has published an excellent article on its website, see here.
