The Vulcan Petawatt interaction facility

Abstract:

The Vulvan Nd:glass laser at the Central Laser Facility (CLF) has recently been upgraded to the Petawatt level (1015 Watts). The three year upgrade project was contracted to deliver 500 J in a near diffraction limited pulse of 500 fs duration. The Petawatt facility will deliver an irradiance on target of 1021 W.cm-2 for a wide ranging experimental programme in fundamental physics and advanced applications. This includes the interaction of super-high intensity light with matter, fast ignition ...
