Particle accelerators are indispensable for research, medicine and industry. We have developed a miniature particle accelerator that accelerates and guides electrons through nanostructures using laser light.

In an interview in Welt der Physik (German), Prof. Dr. Hommelhoff and Stefanie Kraus report on the beginnings of this research up to its current status and possible future applications.
