The system AVET terawatt-level femtosecond laser system comprises rugged Ti:S seed oscillator, pulse stretcher, CPA-based amplifier stages with Nd:YAG pump lasers, vacuum compressor chamber with turbomolecular and vaccum pumps outlets (for the 10-TW and the 15-TW systems), synchronization and control electronics with computer interface. All components are integrated onto a single optical table ensuring stable operation. The additional Pockels cell pulse slicer offers enhanced nanosecond contrast ratio. Moreover, the AVET system may be equipped with a SH and TH generation units.
Applications of the system feature such fundamental areas as particle accelaration for general physics research and cancer treatment, research of relativistic conditions for fusion and plasma studies, generation of X-ray and attosecond pulses, seeding PW-class amplifier systems, as well as remote measurement of air pollution and lightning control via filament studies.
