It was at this same dark matter symposium in 1998 that two groups of scientists reported that the universe is accelerating as well as expanding, a finding described as "one of the greatest discoveries in the history of science" by the symposium's organizer, David Cline, a professor of physics in the UCLA College of Letters and Science and one of the world's experts on dark matter.

In an opinion piece published in various newspapers not long after September 11, 2001, UCLA elementary particle physicist David Cline and I argued that prevention of illegal immigration should be an important component of any comprehensive strategy to protect U.S. cities from a nuclear holocaust.

David Cline, a distinguished professor in the UCLA Department of Physics and Astronomy, and Xiaoping Ding, an assistant researcher at UCLA, have conducted research at Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York and have established that an electron beam can be accelerated by a laser in free space.
This has never been done before at high energies and represents a significant breakthrough, Cline said, adding that it also may have implications for fusion as a new energy source.
The acceleration effect increases along with increasing laser intensity, Cline said. This channel for electrons may be useful for other scientific endeavors, such as guiding an electron beam into a specific region of laser fusion applications, he said.
A possible application of this discovery is the use of laser plasma fusion to provide a new energy source for the U.S. and other countries. The focus of the laser generates a natural channel that can capture electrons and drive them into a pellet that explodes, by fusion, to produce excess energy, Cline said.
With federal funding from the U.S. Department of Energy, a project to carry out a proof-of-principle beam test for the novel vacuum acceleration at Brookhaven National Laboratory's Accelerator Test Facility (BNL-ATF) has been proposed and approved - a collaboration among the UCLA Center for Advanced Accelerators, of which Cline is principal investigator, Ho's group and the Accelerator Test Facility team.
BNL-ATF is one of the few facilities that can provide both a high-quality electron beam and a high-intensity laser beam for the beam test, Cline said. Ho's group provides theoretical support. UCLA scientists - Cline, Ding and Lei Shao, a former UCLA physics graduate student of Cline's - are responsible for the whole experiment and the experimental data analysis.

Cline, Ding, Ho and their colleagues published two papers last month on this research: "Simulation Prediction and Experiment Setup of Vacuum Laser Acceleration at Brookhaven National Lab-Accelerator Test Facility," in the journal Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research A, and the discovery paper "First Observation of Acceleration of Electrons by a Laser in a Vacuum," in the Journal of Modern Physics.
"The discovery of the Higgs boson last July 4 is one of the greatest discoveries of all time and a key to understanding the universe," Cline said.
