Dielectric Laser Accelerators, accelerators on a chip, offer a new approach to the next generation of accelerators. The recently demonstrated gradient of 700 MeV/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.
