The High Power Laser System (HPLS) and the Laser Beam Transport System LBTS are key components of the ELI-NP facility. These systems together allow the creation and delivery of the required laser pulses to the experimental areas where the experiments take place.
The Lasers System Department (LSD) group's task is to follow up and provide support for the implementation of the HPLS and LBTS and their integration within the ELI-NP research facility.
The HPLS consists in two Laser arms, capable of delivering laser pulses at six outputs: 2x 0.1PW@10Hz, 2x 1PW@1Hz, and 2x 10PW @1/min repetition rate. The LBTS is made of meter-large aperture adjustable mirrors installed in a vacuum system of pipes and enclosures that are able to direct the laser pulses to the required experimental setups with micrometric accuracy.
The systems are operated and monitored using specialized hardware and software interfaces. The operation of HPLS and LBTS is done under controlled environmental conditions in terms of air quality and vibration that have to meet specified parameters.
The LSD group capability and skill set covers a wide range of competencies form different domains such as optics, physics, IT, electronics, vacuum and others by technicians, engineers and researchers.
