SLAC, 18 September 1997. An electron (blue) enters the laser beam from the left, and collides with a laser photon to produce a high-energy gamma ray (wiggly yellow line). The electron is deflected downwards. The gamma ray then collides with four or more laser photons to produce an electron-positron pair.
