The 200 m2 HERACLES laboratory houses our state of the art laser system devoted to the generation of high harmonics. The laser system is approaching completion and will provide energy up to 2 mJ at 25 kHz with pulse duration as short as 8 fs resulting in peak power as high as 0.25 TW. Equipment of the latest technology for the production, measurement and amplification of ultrashort pulses is available in our laboratory, including:
