Laser acceleration in dielectric structures offers a new approach to the next generation of accelerators. The recently demonstrated gradient of 700MeV/m is a first step toward an accelerator on-a-chip fabricated using modern lithographic methods. Accelerators on a chip enable attosecond physics from the XUV to X-ray region and open the possibility of TeV energy scale physics in the future.
