Event Details

Generating high peak power laser pulses has been a hot pursuit for decades, as highlighted by the 2018 Nobel prize in physics and recent news from the National Ignition Facility. Tera-Watt and Peta-Watt pulses have been achieved with Chirped Pulse Amplification techniques. Amplification by stimulated Raman scattering may be a key to the next generation of higher peak power lasers. IQSE’s high-power synchronized picosecond and femtosecond pulse lasers have facilitated many fundamental researches and applications of high-power pulses. This talk will overview the systems and researches conducted as well as future plans to stimulate discussions and collaboration opportunities.
