15 September 1995 Generation and applications of high-power ultrashort pulses
Author Affiliations +
Advances in femtosecond laser technology now make it possible to reliably generate laser pulses in the terawatt energy range with 20 fs pulse duration, using laser system which fits on a single optical table. We have demonstrated two such systems: a 10 Hz, 3 TW sysetm, and a 1kHz, 0.05 TW system. These lasers make possible new studies of strong-field laser-matter interactions, and the generation of reliable femtosecond pulsed soft x-rays.
