published an article reporting on the ELL group's successful efforts in continuing to develop an all-optical Compton x-ray source. This
recent advance used all-laser-driven Compton scattering with second harmonic light
to generate 9 MeV gamma-rays. First author Dr. Cheng Liu explains that this result is important because it is the first time, based on published results, an all-laser-driven system generated energy sufficient to be relevant to nuclear research and applications.
