Fiber-Laser Driven Accelerators and the path to Attosecond X-ray Lasers

Prof Robert L. Byer
Applied Physics, Stanford University, USA

The generation and control of light is critical for meeting important laser accelerator challenges of the 21st century. I review progress toward a laser-driven accelerator on-a-chip fabricated using modern lithographic tools.  The laser accelerator is ideal for driving a dielectric-undulator FEL for table top MHz repetition rate attosecond X-ray lasers.  Recent progress and issues that remain to be resolved are identified.
