100 TW Short Pulse Laser System

100 TW Short Pulse Laser System

Taking Short-Pulse Laser Energy to New Peaks. A tabletop laser system that delivers ultrashort pulses with a peak power of 100 trillion watts, each lasting 400 quadrillionths of a second. But the contribution of this new 100-terawatt (TW) laser, whose power is equal to our Nova laserÕs for a fraction of the time, is that it is a stepping stone to the LaboratoryÕs quadrillion-watt (petawatt) laser system, which is scheduled for completion late this year. The 100-TW system will help us perform preliminary tests of certain concepts and components that we hope to investigate later on the petawatt laser. One such concept is that of the fast ignitor, a promising method for achieving fusion ignition at lower laser energy than was previously thought possible. Confirmation of this concept might hasten the day when controlled inertial confinement fusion will be used for commercial power production.
