Electrons surfing a plasma wave. Artwork of electrons (round, labelled 'e') depicted surfing on the crests of a plasma 'wave'. This conceptual artwork shows the results of research where physicists sent a laser pulse (red, lower right) through a plasma (an ionised state of matter). This technology may lead to the development of compact and more affordable particle accelerators for use in hospitals and research facilities.
