Paper Abstract

Advances in femtosecond laser technology now make it possible to reliably generate laser pulses in the terawatt energy range with 20 fs pulse duration, using laser system which fits on a single optical table. We have demonstrated two such systems: a 10 Hz, 3 TW sysetm, and a 1kHz, 0.05 TW system. These lasers make possible new studies of strong-field laser-matter interactions, and the generation of reliable femtosecond pulsed soft x-rays.
