Breakthrough: Nanote creates more electron beam than large laser system

A collaboration led by RadiaBeam Technologies, a California-based technology firm actively involved in accelerator R&D, is designing an electron beam source that doesn't need a laser. The team led by Luigi Faillace, a scientist at RadiaBeam, is testing a carbon nanotube cathode -- about the size of a nickel -- in Fermilab's High-Brightness Electron Source Lab that completely eliminates the need for a room-sized laser system currently used to generate the electron beam.
