Webinar: Laser interaction with matter
by François Légaré, INRS-ÉMT (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Advanced Laser Light Source (ALLS) is a unique infrastructure serving academic, government and industrial users. It is located at the Varennes campus of INRS-EMT, 20 minutes south-east of Montreal. This large national laboratory for ultrafast laser science and technology was initially funded through the "International Joint Ventures Fund" program of the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) with an investment of 20.95M$. Since 2013, the infrastructure has been upgraded with the most powerful laser in Canada - 750TW of peak power - and thanks to the CFI and the Quebec government, we are now in the process of upgrading the high repetition rate sources with higher average power (up to 500W) Ytterbium picosecond laser systems.
During my talk, I will provide an overview of the ALLS experimental capabilities (hard X-ray imaging, THz sources, tunable infrared/mid-infrared lasers, fewcycle laser pulses) as well as recent results from my group demonstrating an efficient approach to generate sub-10 femtosecond pulses from picosecond lasers .
