FEMTOLASERS has been awarded a significant contract to develop and build the “front-end” source to generate ultrafast, high stability, ultra-low noise pulses for the prestigious pan-European High Repetition-Rate Advanced Petawatt Laser System in the Czech Republic. The systems they will be supplying are:
- INTEGRAL™ element™ PRO 500 as an ultrashort pulse seed oscillator
- FEMTOPOWER™ compact™ PRO as a first stage multipass amplifier
- FEMTOPOWER™ V as a booster amplification stage
- FEMTOOPTICS components for temporal pulse cleaning, spectral amplitude and phase shaping
HAPLS is being assembled by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) for the ELI-Beamlines facility in Prague. This new facility will deliver pulses lasting less than 30 femtoseconds at a repetition rate of 10 Hz, with peak powers greater than one Petawatt.
FEMTOLASERS was selected by LLNL and the ELI-Beamlines team as only they could fulfil the technical requirements and meet the strict timescales required for construction of the facility.
HAPLS is being designed to significantly advance the state-of-the-art for high power lasers, allowing international scientific research in areas as diverse as medical imaging, particle acceleration, biophysics, chemistry, and quantum physics.
