    Laser-wakefield accelerators are compact devices capable of delivering ultra-short electron bunches with pC-level charge and MeV-GeV energy by exploiting the ultra-high electric fields arising from the interaction of intense laser pulses with plasma. We show experimenta...

    Abstract Very high energy electrons (VHEE) in the range from 100 to 250 MeV have the potential of becoming an alternative modality in radiotherapy because of their improved dosimetric properties compared with 6–20 MV photons generated by clinical linear accelerators (LI...

    Abstract The increased inertia of very high-energy electrons (VHEEs) due to relativistic effects reduces scattering and enables irradiation of deep-seated tumours. However, entrance and exit doses are high for collimated or diverging beams. Here, we perform a study base...

    It is now well established that atomic nuclei composed of certain combinations of protons and neutrons can adopt reflection-asymmetric, or octupole-deformed, shapes at low excitation energy. These nuclei show promise in the search for a permanent atomic electric dipole ...
