Building a Target Network for Advanced Laser Light Sources

EUCALL Satellite Workshop

Dresden night

Workshop on Building a Target Network for Advanced Laser Light Sources

 

29 - 31 August 2016

Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf

Dresden, Germany

In the next few years a number of paneuropean advanced laser light user facilities will become available for the scientific community, promising major breakthroughs for high energy density physics, relativistic laser plasmas, high pressure science, planetary and astrophysics, advanced accelerators and study of materials under extreme conditions. Most of these facilities will give the possibility of performing high repetition rate experiments, typically in the 1-10 Hz range, corresponding to a requirement of thousands targets per day. Therefore, target availability could very likely become a limiting factor preventing to exploit the full potential of advanced laser and X-ray facilities. The development of a target network for advanced laser light sources would be a strategic asset to ensure the availability of state of the art targets and to promote the formulation of common strategies to address issues related to target delivery and irradiation at high repetition rate.

The main goals of the workshop are:

  • assessing target needs and current target supply strategies
  • discussion of a strategy to develop a target fabrication and characterization network
  • production of a joint "white paper"
