Paper Abstract

This tutorial focuses on the new opportunities that may be harnessed when the operating wavelength of acceleration structures is reduced by more than 5 orders of magnitude from tens of centimeters to a fraction of a micro-meter. On the one hand, we show how a Bragg waveguide may be adapted to work as an acceleration structures and on the other hand, we examine particle acceleration by stimulated emission of radiation - a novel acceleration paradigm demonstrated recently. Implications on future medical accelerators are discussed.
