Paper Abstract

LFEX is the world’s largest high-energy petawatt laser. So far it delivers 3 kJ/1 ps and is planed to finally deliver 10 kJ/10-20 ps. It has been constructed and became partially operational since 2008, and with full beams since 2014. LFEX is synchronized to nsec Gekko-XII laser for variety of experiments with nsec and psec simultaneous laser beams irradiating the targets for fast ignition and other high-energy density physics.
