• Thales manufactures lasers for scientific and industrial markets and expands its laser activities towards the civil market.
• ICFO leads research on laser technologies on a wide spectral domain.

With this collaboration, Thales, a leading player in the field of turn-key intense laser system, aims for scientific and societal applications. These new sources enable various applications, ranging from infrared spectroscopy and biomedical imaging, to particle acceleration, attoscience and table top coherent X-ray imaging and spectroscopy. This new collaboration allows Thales to expand its laser activities towards the civil market. ICFO will develop lasers in the 3 to 6 micron wavelength domain delivering ultrashort pulses. Several technologies will be developed during this programme conducted by Professor Jens Biegert’s team, who are at the leading edge of Optical Parametric Chirped Pulse Amplification (OPCPA) and related pump lasers.

With 30 years of experience in laser design, Thales now develops and markets Petawatt-class intense laser systems. In 2012, Thales developed and delivered the BELLA system, the first turn-key intense laser, offering a power of more than 1 Petawatt (1 million of billions of watts) to the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California. This was followed by the CETAL Petawatt laser in Romania, and Thales was recently awarded a contract by the European research programme Extreme Light Infrastructure for Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP), established to produce two intense lasers of 10 Petawatts each, which will be installed in Romania.
