On January 25th-26th, 2018
the Laser High Field community will celebrate the 70th birthday of one of its founders, mentor and inventor, Professor Toshiki Tajima.
This renaissance man with boundless imagination has been the driving force in building connections among the domains of ultrafast optics, plasma physics, nuclear physics and astrophysics. However, his most acclaimed contribution has been the invention with John Dawson in 1979 of Laser Wakefield Acceleration (LWA). The same concept was extended to electron and proton beams, few years later by P. Chen, J. Dawson, R.WW Huff, T Katsouleas.
Today, using Toshiki Tajima invention, hundreds of groups and thousands of researchers worldwide carry the hope to revolutionize high-energy physics beyond today’s existing frontiers.
Happy 70th Birthday, Toshi!!!
