Paper Abstract

The HiPER infrastructure reprsents a uniquely valuable tool for scientific discovery because it will be able to generate extreme matter conditions similar to those existing in our sun and the universe. The existence of long and short laser pulses in one infrastructure is fascinating and will allow for the study of new branches of physics suck as the properties of matter under extremer conditions in the laboratory. HiPER is therefore being designed to enable a broad area of new science studies including warm dense matter studies, astrophysics in the laboratory, extreme mater studies (under extreme magnetic and electric fields), highly nonlinear laser plasma interactions etc. The scope of this presentation is to present the progress of work on: a) the fundamental science target area design and b) the shielding requirements for the fundamental science programme.
