From CERN Courier: High-gradient X-band technology: from TeV colliders to light sources and more

31 May 2018 Things that start out in fundamental research quite regularly find their way into fields other than high energy physics. Take the Compact Linear Collider study CLIC, for example. CLIC's unique requirements have led to the development of a new high-gradient "X-band" acceleration technology that is attracting the interest of researchers working at light sources, in the medical sector and even art museums.
