ZEUS laser schematic.

Operational modes

  • 3 PW (1 shot/minute);
  • Colliding pulses 500 TW/2.5 PW (1 shot/minute) or 500 TW (5 Hz);
  • Long pulse driver ~ 50 J, 1 nsec (1 shot/10 minutes) with short pulse probes;
  • High magnetic field (30 T) capability.

Targets

  • Solid, liquid, gas;
  • High rep rate – rotating;
  • Solid targets mounted in-house (limited fabrication capability);
  • 3D printed variable length gas cells, nozzles.
