We experimentally demonstrate several physical concepts necessary for
the future development of dielectric laser accelerators—photonic
elements that utilize the inelastic interaction between electrons and
the optical near fields of laser-illuminated periodic nanostructures. To
build a fully photonic accelerator, concatenation of elements, large
energy gains, and beam steering elements are required. Staged
acceleration is shown using two spatio-temporally separated interaction
regions. Further, a chirped silicon grating is used to overcome the
velocity dephasing of subrelativistic electrons with respect to its
optical near fields, and last, a parabolic grating geometry serves for
focusing of the electron beam.
