Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Peak irradiances in excess of 10^19 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 10^19 Wcm-2.
