PI Contribution Working together on a beam run and future beam runs on the CLARA Test Facility. Our research team has brought knowledge on the THz generation side of experiment.
Collaborator Contribution Working together on a beam run and future beam runs on the CLARA Test Facility. Partner has brought experience working with the electron beam facility.
Impact Worked together on beam run in January 2019. This paper came from this: https://arxiv.org/abs/1908.04055. Currently working together on beam run scheduled for the summer of 2020 to improve the results from the last run.
