10-fs range ultrahigh peak power lasers
Additional Document Info
A three-stage, multi-output laser system is described. The amplification of pulses produce X-rays for use in ultrafast diffraction studies of molecular dissociation, ultrafast near edge absorption studies of molecular dynamics, and time-grated X-ray mammography and angiography. The resulting system is capable of simultaneously producing ultrafast pulses of ultrahigh peak power at repetition rates that are many orders of magnitude higher than similar peak power.
