Description/Abstract

Peak irradiances in excess of 1019 Wcm−2 have been delivered to target with the VULCXN Nd:glass laser using chirped pulse amplification (CPA). Recent developments have achieved sub picosecond pulses with compressed output powers of 35 TW in a single large aperture beam, with focused intensities on target in excess of 1019 Wcm−2.
