Graduate Student Seminar - 11/03/2017

"Introduction to MIRLIN"

by Robert Schwartz

Friday, November 3, 2017 -- 12:00 p.m.
Large Conference Room, 1207 Energy Research Facility

Advisor:  Professor Howard Milchberg

Abstract: The new MIRLIN (Mid-IR Laser in New Lab) OPCPA system in Dr. Milchberg's new lab provides 25 mj, 100 fs pulses with a wavelength of 3.9 μm at 20 Hz. It is one of the few systems in the world that can provide such short pulses and high peak powers in the mid-IR. This talk will give an introduction to OPCPA technology and outline some of the experiments planned for the laser.
