Laser Technology and Materials Science


Lasers are pivotal in many areas of accelerator development. High-power lasers are essential for laser-wakefield accelerators and laser-driven dielectric accelerators. The installed "split-ring resonator" (SRR) in FLUTE requires high-power laser-generated THz radiation to deflect electrons.
Lasers enable high-precision synchronization processes at sub-femtosecond level and precise beam diagnosis with highest resolutions. The latest findings in materials science play a decisive role, while even higher resolution requirements push the development of new materials forward.
