Abstract:

The Phase-Controlled Multi-Terawatt Femtosecond Laser PCMTFL is established as the major laser facility in the Townes Laser Institute at the University of Central Florida for study of high- intensity laser material interaction, laser propagation and ultrashort laser filamentation. Based on the existing laser system that was providing 35 fs pulses 25 mJ at 10 Hz and 2 mJ at 1 kHz, it consists of an important upgrade of the latter. This upgrade is being performed at the present time by the Laser Development team inside the Laser Plasma Laboratory. This choice was led by the importance of optimizing the specifications that can be obtained with the state-of-the-art COTS lasers, optics and crystals as well as the formation of students in CPA lasers.
