ATF Scientific Needs Workshop

High-Power Mid-IR Laser Capabilities for Advanced Accelerator and Laser Research


The increasing importance of lasers in advanced accelerators and related R&D puts user facility resources in high demand. This is particularly so in the case of high-peak-power, mid-IR (9-11μm regime) lasers, which are much less common than high-peak-power ~1μm lasers and not as widely available to the academic and broader research communities. As the home of the world’s only TW class mid-IR (centered around λ=10 μm) laser user facility, Brookhaven National Lab is requesting community input and hosting a discussion of the future laser needs in this regime.
