Congratulations to Dr. Maksimchuk! ZEUS is very lucky to have you as a key member of our team!
The Multi-Petawatt Physics Prioritization (MP3) Workshop will bring together scientific communities to focus on promising new science enabled by a new generation of ultra-intense and powerful lasers (such as ZEUS!). Louise Willingale, Assistant Professor in the U-M Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, will be co-chairing the workshop. Everyone from the ZEUS community please get Continue Reading »

Since the invention of Chirped Pulse Amplification (Strickland and Mourou, Physics Nobel 2018), lasers have become increasingly powerful by squeezing energy into inconceivably short pulses. The pulses of light produced by these lasers, such as the new ZEUS Continue Reading »
Carolyn Kuranz, Associate Professor in the U-M Department of Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences (NERS), begins her term as a member of the Fusion Energy Sciences Advisory Committee (FESAC).
From Michigan News: ANN ARBOR—The United States is upgrading its laser capabilities with ZEUS, a new three-petawatt system to be built at the University of Michigan. Three petawatts is equal to three quadrillion watts, or a 3 followed by 15 zeros.
Funded with $16 million from the National Science Foundation, the facility will enable Continue Reading »
