DESCRIPTION

On this website the user can follow a plasma accelerator setup from the production and forming of the laser light over the acceleration in the plasma to generating and emitting very bright X-rays.

DESY not only operates various accelerator facilities, it is also working on promising concepts for the future: “Laser plasma acceleration should one day make it possible to build machines that are significantly more compact, space-saving and cost-effective than today’s large-scale accelerators,” says Wim Leemans, director of the Accelerator Division at DESY. An elaborate visual animation now demonstrates how this innovative technique works: Viewers can watch interactively and in detail how powerful laser pulses are transformed into electron beams that travel at nearly the speed of light and are tremendously useful in research.
