The very new laser of the "Plateforme Laser Femtoseconde Accordable, PLFA" began to be installed last year within the Service de Photons Atomes et Molécules
" (CEA-Saclay ans CNRS). It belongs to the infrastructure l'infrastructure SLIC
, member of the European network LASERLAB-EUROPE
and is thus accessible to European scientists
. It was designed according to several bets: high repetition rate (1 Khz), strong pulse energy (up to 13mJ, at 800nm), broad accordability (500-750nm) and ultra-fast pulses (<35 fs = 35x10-15
s). The very first results obtained with the PLFA laser are just published. More...
