The laser installation has commenced

20 August, 2019

Another key milestone has been achieved by the team at DESY.

The AXSIS team is excited to announce that the simultaneous installation of three different lasers has commenced and will finish shortly.  Each of the laser's will be used at different stages of the overall AXSIS facility.

The first laser will be used for Single-Cycle Terahertz generation. This laser will provide 200 mJ at 50 Hz with a pulse duration of 480 fs.

The second laser will be used for Multi-Cycle Terahertz generation. This laser will provide 2 J at 10 Hz with a pulse duration of 500 ps.

And finally, the last laser is the team's inhouse developed 1 J, 1000 Hz, 5 ps cryogenic laser which will be used for Inverse Compton Scattering.
