SLAC and Stanford scientists used nanofabricated chips of fused silica just three millimeters long to accelerate electrons at a rate 10 times higher than conventional particle accelerator technology. Credit: Matt Beardsley, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

The key to the accelerator chips is tiny, precisely spaced ridges, which cause the iridescence seen in this close-up photo. Credit: Matt Beardsley, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
