Dielectric laser accelerators (DLA) - a novel class of accelerator in which electrons interact with laser-induced accelerating near-fields in the vicinity of dielectric nanostructures - have recently demonstrated accelerating gradients in the GeV/m regime. As such, DLAs may enable accelerator applications not available to classical RF accelerators [1,2]. However there are still major challenges in order to maintain the interaction between electrons and near-fields over longer distances (necessary for larger energy gains) and to achieve even higher accelerating gradients. Developing new nano-structures is essential to solve these issues. In this work we discuss the fabrication of different geometries of silicon such as single side gratings, dual circular pillars and sinusoidal pillars gratings that aim to achieve high gradients and energy gains. E-beam lithography and reactive ion etching (RIE) are used to fabricate the nano-structures. Future designs to address focusing and tapered structures are also discussed.
