Petawatt Lasers

ELI Beamlines' laser team already developed and is developing and co-developing, in partnership with major laser technology suppliers of the project, a number of essential systems for Petawatt (PW) and 10 PW lasers.

The development at ELI Beamlines involves real-time controls and femtosecond-precision timing systems, which make it possible to synchronize operation of the individual lasers to the ELI Beamlines facility clock. A major activity is the design and development of spectrally broadband laser pulse stretchers and large PW and 10 PW laser pulse compressors. Other significant developments include sophisticated laser diagnostic instrumentation capable of providing online information on parameters of the PW and multi PW repetition-rate laser pulses.
