The Intense Laser Irradiation Laboratory


2015: A major upgrade (ILIL-PW) of the laser system is currently in progress.

The ILIL-PW upgrade includes a power amplifier and a fully shieleded target area. The power amplifier, when completed, will deliver 250 TW power pulses at a repetition rate up to 5Hz.

The currently available 10 TW/10Hz system output will continue to be delivered to the existing interaction target chambers for laser-gas and laser-solid interactions respectively.
