NSF ZEUS Laser Facility
Zettawatt-Equivalent Ultrashort pulse laser System at the University of Michigan
Once completed, the ZEUS laser system will be the highest-power laser system in the US and will be among the highest-power lasers worldwide for the next decade.
ZEUS will allow exploration of fundamental yet unanswered questions regarding non-linear quantum electrodynamics in relativistic plasmas, including quantum radiation reaction and electron-positron pair production mechanisms.
ZEUS will operate as an NSF sponsored user facility, offering external users experimental access to advance science frontiers and enable discovery.
