Photo shows a prototype device designed by the MIT team to produce a very narrow, high-powered beam of electrons for an experiment called DarkLight. The device was tested at the Jefferson National Accelerator Facility to confirm that it could meet the requirements needed to detect a hypothesized particle based on one theory about the nature of dark matter.
