Research Infrastructure

Prague Asterix Laser System

Description The Prague Asterix Laser System facility was conceived as a laboratory providing the basis for experimental research in the field of high-power lasers and their applications, notably in the physics of laser plasmas. It became operational in spring 2000. The principal experimental resource at PALS is the high-power iodine laser system Asterix IV. This instrument was developed at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics in Garching, Germany, and with the latest upgrade in 1991 it provided irradiation facility at the 1 kJ energy level until May 1997. It has been exploited by a wide international research community, within the European Large-Scale Facilities scheme.
