Breakthrough: nanotube cathode creates more electron beam than large laser system
A collaboration led by RadiaBeam Technologies is designing an electron beam source that doesn't need the room-sized laser system currently used to generate beam. The team is testing a carbon nanotube cathode in Fermilab's High-Brightness Electron Source Lab.
