SL-GT-10 I The ultra thin high density gas jet for near-critical regime

TARGETRY

SL-GT-10

A gas jet dedicated to your physics

High-density gas jet system
(up to multiple nc)

Fully interfaced,
easy-to-tune output flow

Submillimetric
hypersonic jet

Open/close timescale
within few ms

This high density gas jet offers unprecedented capabilities in terms of density range and jet size (FWHM):

• with a single equipment, the experimentalist can explore a broad perimeter of laser-plasma interaction regimes.

• from 10-2 to several nc (from underdense to overdense)

The SL-GT-10 is the only jet system enabling access to densities in the near-critical regime for Ti:Sa laser pulse (800 nm), while keeping the jet size sub-millimetric.

The versatility of the SL-GT-10 system enables an experimentalist to produce flows of various Mach number (from subsonic to M>>1 flows), and gradient scale lengths over a ten-fold range (from 100 µm to 1 mm).

It is particularly adapted to study parametrically via optical diagnostics (plasma microscopy) the laser pulse propagation conditions and energy coupling.
