Ultracold electron and ion beams

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherAcademic

Abstract

Extracting electrons and ions from an ultracold plasma provides an entirely new way of generating charged-particle beams, which has the potential for advancing the state-of-the-art in beam brightness by orders of magnitude. This may have far-ranging implications for applications as diverse as time-resolved sub-picosecond electron microscopy, x-ray free electron lasers, and nanometer ion beam milling. In this talk I will dwell on a few of the exciting prospects for both science and industry and I will present experimental results of the first ultracold electron and ion beams, which were recently obtained at Eindhoven University.
