Tiptoe

SourceLAB and the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) are proud to announce the commercial kick-off of the TIPTOE, based on a technique recently developed at CoReLS lab (South Korea). TIPTOE is a spectrally broadband (200nm – 20µm) cross-correlator based on tunnel ionization, that enables to plot the exact temporal profile of the electric field of a laser pulse, without sign ambiguities. In particular, it is well-adapted for the mid-IR spectral range where no equivalent exists so far

Gas Cell

We have successfully built an innovative gas cell for laser plasma science, comprizing fast (~3ms) open/close gates at extremities to ensure a very limited gas load in the vacuum chamber at each laser shot. The cell can be adjusted in length on-line, then filled by a gas pressure regulator piloted by the user.

Nozzles

SourceLAB, in collaboration with Phasics and Onera (France), have identified a very interesting regime of operating gas jets for laser plasma interaction. In this regime, a jet from a shock nozzle (SL-Noz Comp) is probed at early instants of the flow with a 20µs time resolution. Thin and well localized density peaks can be observed at some specific height above the nozzle. Focussing an intense laser in such peaks can be quite beneficial for laser plasma acceleration.

Insight

Our new tool for advanced metrology and mapping of spatio-temporal couplings (STC) at the laser focus was successfully implemented to completely characterize for the first time a PetaWatt femtosecond laser operating at full intensity.

SL-GT-10 : high density gas jet

We have successfully demonstrated in our lab the production in a stable and reproducible regime of a very sharp and high density helium jet. The jet size is <30 µm FWHM, and reads atomic peak density close to 5 x 1020 atoms/cm3. This is a factor five improvement in size comparing to our precedent record in thin and dense gas jet production. We believe this important step forward will benefit in particular to electron injection in laser wakefield acceleration, ion acceleration in near-critical regime and HHG with mid-IR drivers.

SmartShot: an easy access to medium densities range

SourceLAB and our partner Smartshell are proud to propose the smartshot jet system, ideal for reliable laser wakefield acceleration of electron. The wave-free supersonic pulsed gas jet system SMARTSHOT is developed as a gas target for laser-plasma interaction studies such as laser-plasma acceleration, X-ray lasers, laser-plasma X-ray sources, etc…
It can be used for the experimental studies which require the production of very localized high-density gas target with high repetition rate in vacuum.

KAIO : the first plug & play laser plasma accelerator for beam applications

We are pleased to introduce our Kit All In One, a unique powerful tool for ion acceleration and “on-target / high-flux” laser monitoring. KAIO users can accelerate ions with an intense laser, study the related physics and make benefit of the stable ion beam for direct applications (e.g dosimetry, hardening, surface analysis).

With TNSA proton signal from KAIO, users have unambiguous and quantitative access to laser pulse quality (e.g. temporal contrast) and are empowered to improve their laser to suit laser plasma requirements.
