Waveguides in three-dimensional photonic bandgap materials for particle-accelerator on a chip architectures

Staude, Isabelle; McGuinness, Christopher; Frölich, Andreas; Byer, Robert L.; Colby, Eric; Wegener, Martin


The quest for less costly and more compact high-energy particle accelerators makes research on alternative acceleration mechanisms an important enterprise. From the multitude of suggested concepts, the photonic accelerator design by B. M. Cowan [Phys. Rev. ST Accel. Beams 11, 011301 (2008)] stands out by its distinct potential of creating an accelerator on a chip [Proposal E-163, SLAC (2001)]. Herein, electrons are accelerated by the axial electric field of a strongly confined optical mode of...[Show more]
