Projects and Focus
|The experimental and theoretical investigation of the interaction of light with matter in the relativistic intensity regime represents the key activity of the group. The focus lies on the development of novel compact and brilliant sources of energetic particle beams and of potential applications, e.g., in the field of radiation therapy. In connection with the radiation source ELBE accelerator physics as well as the realization of optical undulators provides challenging goals.|
|For this purpose the division operates the 150 TW Ti:Sapphire laser Draco (Dresden laser acceleration source) since 2008. Its only 30 fs long pulses can be guided into two separate experimental areas where they are used either alone or in combination with the electron pulses of the radiation source ELBE. To be able to make use of of highest laser power and energy simultaneously in the future, another central topic is the development of a diode pumped PW laser.|
