Abstract

We have developed a hybrid Ti:sapphire–Nd:glass laser system that produces more than 1500 TW (1.5 PW) of peak power. The system produces 660 J of power in a compressed 440±20 fs pulse by use of 94-cm master diffraction gratings. Focusing to an irradiance of >7×1020 W/cm 2 is achieved by use of a Cassegrainian focusing system employing a plasma mirror.
