Abstract
The PALS project is based on iodine photodissociation system ASTERIX transferred from the Max-Planck-Institute fŸr Quantenoptik, Garching, Germany, to a dedicated experimental hall built at the Institute of Plasma Physics of Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. A novel feature of the system is a newly designed twin interaction chamber comprising several technical innovations. As a user facility the system was inaugurated in June 2000 and starting from October it will serve the users coming under the EU 5thFP "Transnational access" scheme. A brief description of planned upgrades of the original system is given. These include (1) implementation of adaptive optics, (2) replacement of the iodine master oscillator by a more flexible solid state oscillator based on fiber optics, and (3) a fs extension of the laser output using the OPCPA method.
