SL-LT

The SL-ST-1000 system

 

The SourceLAB Solid Target is a motorized mechanical assembly conceived for the interaction of a high-intensity laser with a solid target at very high repetition rate, up to several kHz.

This system can be used for plasma mirror contrast cleaning and high energy particle or radiation generation, such as sub-femtosecond XUV pulses, electron or proton beam acceleration.

Ultra-high positioning precision
(< 2 µm PTV and < 100 nm with active stabilization)

Rotation velocity > 720 °/s
(adapted to kHz interaction)

Fully interfaced and easy to align

(adapted to kHz interaction)

Fully interfaced and easy to align

Designed to offer perfectly reproducible interaction conditions

Even for the tightest focusing, the rotating target surface is precisely and easily aligned with the rotation axis.

As a consequence, without active stabilization, target surface residual motion is limited to 2 µm Peak-to-Valley and maintains the surface of interaction within the Rayleigh length of the incoming laser beam.

With active stabilization in option, the residual motion is lower than 100 nm PTV.

Perfect for plasma-mirroring

Example of plasma mirror setup based on the SL-ST-1000 target

Excellent laser contrast is a key parameter to enable laser-plasma interaction.

SourceLAB is specialized in designing systems and beamlines providing perfect interaction conditions to experimentalists.

With its precise positioning, and compatibility with high repetition rates (up to several kHz), the SL-ST-1000 is a unique component for a state-of-the-art plasma mirror setup.

SourceLAB can manage all of the aspects of the design of such a complex equipment, from physics to integration.
