Body

Colorado State University Petawatt-Class Laser is an ultra-short pulse Ti:sapphire laser system that produces ultrahigh-contrast λ = 400 nm femtosecond pulses of up to 10 J, obtained by frequency doubling 800 nm pulses of 30 fs duration.  An intensity of 6.5x1021 W/cm2 is obtained focusing the beam with an f/2 parabola. An f/1 parabola will be available after July 2019 that is expected to deliver intensities >1×1022. The beam/pulse parameters presently offered by the laser are summarized in the Laser Modes table.
