Paper Abstract

The Vulcan laser has been a tool to preform high energy plasma physics, including among others laboratory astrophysics and particle acceleration. The Petawatt laser beamline/target area is now going to be updated with a new beamline. This new beamline is going to be entirely set upon OPCPA as an amplification technique, and will primarily be dedicated to betatron imaging. This laser will be used at the same time as a 600 J, PW beamline, a 250J ns beam and a kJ ns long pulse. Overall we present a PW class OPCPA system comparable with Ti:sapphire laser PW systems, 30J, sub-30fs pulses.
