A high-energy chirped laser system for fast manipulation of gases Conference Paper uri icon


  • We describe a high-energy, frequency chirped laser system designed for optical acceleration of neutral particles and gas phase diagnostics. This system produces pulse amplified beams (700 mJ) for durations of 20 ns - 10 μs and chirp of up to 1.2 GHz. © 2012 OSA.
