Professor Alec Thomas wins Research Accelerator Award
NERS Associate Professor Alec Thomas has won a Research Accelerator Award for his team’s proposal to construct a high-repetition-rate X-ray beamline, using U-M’s HERCULES laser, for transformative manufacturing applications across engineering, medicine, homeland security and science.
Intense laser experiments provide first evidence that light can stop electrons
By hitting electrons with an ultra-intense laser, researchers have stopped them as effectively shooting them at a sheet of lead, demonstrating what’s called “radiation reaction.”
