Abstract
We describe the physical principles and architecture of a multi-stage picosecond terawatt CO2 laser system, PITER-I, operational at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL). The laser is a part of the DOE user's facility open for international scientific community. One of the prospective strong-field physics applications of PITER-I is the production of proton- and heavy-ion beams upon irradiating thin-film targets and gas jets. We discuss the possibilities for upgrading a CO2 laser to a multi-terawatt femtosecond regime.
