Shaping intense laser light (IMAGE) University of Rochester Caption Illustration depicting the method outline by LLE researchers to shape intense laser light in a way that accelerates electrons to record energies in very short distances. An ultrashort pulse (yellow) propagating to the right and reflecting from a radial echelon (right most element) controls the time at which each ring comes to focus after reflecting from an axiparabolla (left most element).
