Assistant Professor Robert Candler received a $1 million research grant from the W. M. Keck Foundation for his research entitled “Ultra-compact X-ray Free Electron Laser.” This is a 2-year endeavor which aims to produce a miniaturized free electron laser by combining novel nanofabrication techniques with cutting edge free electron laser physics, enabling access to new physical regimes of operation that are inherently more efficient. Partnering in this effort are Prof. Rob Candler from Electrical Engineering and the California NanoSystems Institute, Professor Pietro Musumeci from Physics, and Professor James Rosenzweig from Physics.
