CELIA offers an outstanding opportunity for gathering expertises in laser development, strong Field and/or Ultra-High Intensity Physics, Inertial Fusion for Energy (IFE) and industrial applications of short pulses. CELIA is an active member of a National Laser Network LOA-LIDYL-CELIA and the European Large Lasers Network LASERLAB-EUROPE for providing access beamtime to his lasers and beamlines. National network is dedicated to labs and teams from France, LaserLab-EUROPE for worldwide labs and teams.
Lasers and beamlines
CELIA offers 3 lasers to the scientific community including Ti:saphirre ultrashort pulse technology (AURORE 1kHz, 25 fs, 20 W and ECLIPSE 10 Hz,150 mJ, 30fs) and new born Yb fiber high repetition rate technology (BLASTBEAT 50W, 166 kHz to 2MHz, 130 fs) . 6 beam lines driven by these lasers are available including HHG, Xrays, and UV pump-probe.
