Abstract

The transition from present high peak-power laser systems, encumbered by low efficiency and repetition rates, to systems of high average-power capable of real-world applications can be achieved by utilizing existing fiber based technology. A summary of the development of such a system by the ICAN consortium is provided here together with descriptions of exciting applications ranging from photon colliders to nuclear transmutation systems.
