Dielectric laser accelerators are potential candidates to succeed conventional RF accelerators because they can support high accelerating field and use commercial lasers as a power source. The recent results achieved in proof-of-concept experiments will be detailed. The next steps envisaged to demonstrate the viability of dielectric laser acceleration for various applications will be outlined.
