The potential of plasma wakefield acceleration

Bigger colliders (and the bigger price tags that come with them) have been essential for advances in particle physics. But what if there were a way to scale down their immense size? What if you could accelerate particles to even higher energies in only a few meters?

This is the alluring potential of an up-and-coming technology called plasma wakefield acceleration.
