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 »

1st ZEUS user webinar Q&As

General facility questions

Q:  Is there a facility resource/FAQ page? ie. For information on available and upcoming diagnostics?

A: We are in the relatively early stages of designing the system and therefore the final capabilities and full diagnostics are being developed. User input to this will be very important. A timeline is added to the Continue Reading »
