    Periodic modulation tweaks innovative particle accelerators

    Scientists in Hamburg have come up with an ingenious way of improving so-called plasma accelerators, which are considered promising candidates to become the particle accelerators of the future. The quality of the electron beam produced by these innovative particle accelerators can be substantially improved by adding an oscillating component, as researchers from DESY’s Accelerators and Particle Physics divisions, together with a group headed by Andreas R. Maier from the University of Hamburg, now report in the journal Physical Review Letters.

    Quasicrystals Made of Fullerenes

    Jülich, 22 May 2017 – For about 35 years now, researchers have been fascinated by a new class of materials – quasicrystals, the discovery of which was marked by a Nobel Prize in 2011. For a long time, they were only found in ternary alloys. That is to say, metals composed of three different types of atoms. They were subsequently found in other systems, such as liquid crystals and perovskite films. Scientists at Forschungszentrum Jülich have now discovered another class of quasicrystals and by using computer simulations they have explained the reasons for the special arrangement of the molecules.
