Paper Abstract

The chirped pulse amplification technique combined with the use of different shifted narrow band amplifying media allows us to produce sub-100 TW pulses with duration in the 250 - 300 fs range. By focusing these pulses on target we have obtained peak intensities above 2.1019 W/cm2 with a contrast ratio of 10-7 - 10-6 for the nanosecond background.
