Lawrence Livermore-developed Petawatt Laser System Installed at ELI Beamlines
The L3-HAPLS was installed at the ELI Beamlines Research Center in Dolní Břežany, Czech Republic. L3-HAPLS—the world’s most advanced and highest average power, diode-pumped petawatt laser system—was designed, developed and constructed in only three years by LLNL’s NIF and Photon Science Directorate and delivered to ELI Beamlines in June 2017.
