Optimisation and applications of Raman plasma amplifiers

Abstract:

Laser pulses have the shortest duration, smallest spatial extent, highest power, longest range and highest electric field of any known physical probe. In just 5 decades, the laser has led to the detection of gravitational waves, quantum optics and computers, worldwide fibre-optic communications, innumerable manufacturing applications and a prime contender for replicating the sun's nuclear fusion on earth. Modern high power lasers achieve intensities exceeding 1021 W/cm-2
