Manufacturer: Thales Optonics, France.
Key features of the laser:
Peak power outputs: 1 PW / 45 TW
Ultra-short pulses, aproximately 25 fs
Spectral broadening by using XPW filter in the Front End
Pulse shaping by spectral phase and amplitude manipulation with an Acousto Optic Programmable
Dispersion Filter (AOPDF) DAZZLER
High intensity ps contrast, > 1010 @100 ps
Improvement of picosecond pre pulse intensity contrast by use of XPW filter
High Strehl Ratio, more than 0.75.
Wavefront control using adaptive optics
The laser system allow to work in two configurations: 1 PW @ 0.1 Hz and 45 TW @ 10 Hz
