Paper Abstract

VEGA system is a petawatt (PW) laser user facility belonging to the Centro de Láseres Pulsados in Salamanca that allows developing experiments for exploring the physics of intense lasers interactions with matter. The Ti:Sapphire Chirped Pulse Amplification (CPA) based laser chain has three common front-end outputs (VEGA 1-2-3) at 1 PW, 150 TW and 20 TW respectively. This configuration, as well as the near future installation of an additional carrier envelope phase (CEP) stabilized system synchronized with VEGA front-end, opens the possibility of multiple pump-probe experiments. In this work we present the key components of this laser research infrastructure.
