• ELSA Laboratory

    Creation of the extreme light fields laboratory in Nizhny Novgorod enabled construction of a multipetawatt laser complex with unprecedented power. Unique diagnostic facilities for studying materials with attosecond (10-18s) temporal resolution have been installed. Record-efficiency methods of terahertz generation by optical pulses were developed.

  • Multipetawatt laser complex

    Construction of the multipetawatt laser complex that is one of the most powerful laser facilities in the world enables researchers to carry out basic research on the interaction of superintense fields with matter, produce accelerated particles for medical diagnostics, and to model astrophysical and early cosmological phenomena.

  • Complex for terahertz studies

    Efficient methods of generating and recording terahertz radiation capable of penetrating clothes, paper, plastics, and other materials that allow detecting explosives and drugs, on the one hand, and be safe for man, on the other hand.

  • Complex for attosecond studies

    The attosecond complex of the laboratory hosts the first Russian laser system with optical pulse phase stabilized relative to its envelope.

The one-day workshop "WHAT WE CAN CONTRIBUTE TO ICAN?" will be held on December 16, 2013 at the University of Nizhny Novgorod. It is dedicated to prospective participation of Russian research institutions and universities in the upcoming European megaproject on the development of a "dream laser" capable to deliver light with Petawatt peak and Megawatt average power. Such a source will undoubtedly create a revolution in societal application of high peak power lasers, harnessing a full range of technologies from laser based radiation medicine to nuclear waste processing.
