Paper Abstract

A Multi-Petawatt High-Engergy laser coupled to the LIL (MPWHE-LIL) is under construction in the Aquitaine Region in France. This facility will be open to academic community. Nd:glass laser chain and Chirped Pulse Amplification (CPA)technique makes possible to deliver high energy. Optical Parametric Chirped Pulse Amplification (OPCPA) for pre-amplification and new compression scheme will be implemented. The MPWHE-LIL will deliver output energy of 3.6 kJ in 500 fs on target corresponding to more than 7 PW. The PW laser facility linked to UV-60kJ-ns beam from LIL, will give new scientific research opportunities.
