Electron resonance acceleration by an intense laser pulse in an inhomogeneous external magnetic field is investigated. The acceleration mechanism makes use of electron cyclotron resonance to increase the electron energy. By appropriately tailoring the radial gradient of the magnetic field, an electron in the rising front part of laser pulse will be attracted toward the cyclotron-resonance radius and be trapped there, so that it can gain much energy. It is shown that the electron net energy gain can be up to the GeV level.

    The AdS/CFT correspondence has led to important insights into the properties of quantum chromodynamics even though QCD is a broken conformal theory. We have recently shown how a holographic model based on a truncated AdS space can be used to obtain the hadronic spectrum of light qq,qqq and gg...
