HAPLS at ELI Beamlines

In collaboration with ELI Beamlines and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Leonardo Electronics US was pivotal in developing the high-repetition-rate advanced petawatt laser system (HAPLS) now operating as L3 at ELI Beamlines in the Czech Republic. Leonardo developed and manufactured the four 800 kW diode pump modules that power the main amplifier in this laser. L3 is helping to advance a variety of research topics. Among those is laser wakefield acceleration to create a variety of high energy particle beams, laser matter interaction for basic research, and even exploring novel techniques to exploit fusion energy.

Leonardo Electronics US has partnered with UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) to further discoveries and research in laser physics. Our most recent project was to design and build a laser diode system for use in a high-energy laser amplifier system as part of the new Extreme Photonics and Applications Centre (EPAC) run by the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s Central Laser Facility (CLF). Based at STFC’s Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire, UK, the system consists of two optical modules that deliver up to 35 J each at 10 Hz at a peak power of 29 kW. We are proud to partner with universities and laboratories worldwide to create advancements in emerging applications.
