Abstract
We describe two development projects: Astra-Gemini: a Petawatt class system based Ti: Sapphire amplifiers and a 10 PW upgrade for the Vulcan laser. The design concepts, features of the optical design of amplifiers and compressors are presented. Radial delay compensation techniques used for a 3-x beam expander are discussed.
