After evaluation by an international peer review group, the L3-HAPLS advanced petawatt laser system has been declared fully integrated and operational at the ELI Beamlines Research Center in Dolní Bežany, Czech Republic. The group assessed the laser performance, determined that all performance parameters have been successfully met – capable of reaching the 1 petawatt, 10 hertz (Hz) design specification – and that the system is ready for integration with the experimental systems and first experiments.

L3-HAPLS was designed, developed and constructed by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s (LLNL) NIF and Photon Science (NIF&PS) Directorate and delivered to ELI Beamlines in June 2017. Since September 2017, an integrated team of scientific and technical staff from LLNL and ELI Beamlines have worked intensively on the installation of the laser hardware.
