Stanford’s Tiny Accelerator Promises Giant Leaps for Medical and Physics Breakthroughs

Illustration of a shoebox-sized accelerator. An electron source and buncher/injector feeds into a sub-relativistic DLA (the device described in this article), which accelerates electrons up to 1MeV in energy. These electrons are further accelerated by SiO2 waveguide-driven relativistic DLA, and finally pass through an undulator to produce coherent free-electron radiation.

Giant ‘Rivers’ That Flow Through The Sky Mapped For First Time : ScienceAlert

Rivers of intense moisture wend their way through our atmosphere just as their liquid counterparts do across the land. Unfortunately the sky streams are much harder for us to see.Often a product of cyclones, atmospheric rivers can dictate where intense rain will fall, making their lack of visibility a problem. Understanding them grows increasingly important as our warming atmosphere soaks up even greater amounts of water, forcing these aerial waterways to change course.Until now, researchers relied on computer modeling…
