"Quasi-single-cycle multi-Terawatt Laser Development and it's Applications" by Dr. Laszlo Veisz
Friday, October 11, 2013 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Room 102

A unique light source based on the optical parametric synthesizer principle is presented. It delivers pulses with sub-5-fs pulse duration and 18 TW peak power and it is focusable to ultra-relativistic intensities of about 10^20 W/cm^2. This unparalleled source is ideally suited for the generation of (a) intense isolated attosecond XUV pulses via high harmonic generation in gases or overdense plasmas as well as (b) relativistic attosecond electron bunches from laser-plasma interaction. These sources open up various fields of applications, among others nonlinear XUV science or electron diffraction in the attosecond domain.

Dr Veisz was educated in Budapest, Jena and Vienna, and has been at MPQ since 2004, where he is now the Deputy Director of the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics. He has won many awards, including a Lisa Meitner Fellowship at TU – Vienna. His current interests are in high power OPCPA laser systems, laser-particle acceleration, ultrafast electron diffraction and single attosecond pulse generation and applications.
