Under the leadership of our theory partners at TU Darmstadt (working group of Prof. Dr. Boine-Frankenheim), a contribution to Phys. Rev. Lett. has just been published. We show theoretically that electrons can be accelerated with the help of nanophotonic structures and laser pulses without losing a l...

We describe an electron microscope whose electron emitter is operated with femtosecond laser pulses and a whole series of experiments with this device around electron acceleration using photonic structures in a publication that has just appeared in the Journal of Applied Physics. Apparently the arti...
