Miniaturization Techniques for Accelerators [report]

James E Spencer
2003 unpublished
The possibility of laser driven accelerators[1] suggests the need for new structures based on micromachining and integrated circuit technology because of the comparable scales. Thus, we are exploring fully integrated structures including sources, optics (for both light and particle) and acceleration in a common format -an accelerator-on-chip (AOC). Tests suggest a number of preferred materials and techniques but no technical or fundamental roadblocks at scales of order 1 m or larger.
