Press Release (January 2023) ‘Ghostly mirrors’ for high-power lasers

  Our large team of more than 30 researchers conducts both experimental and theoretical research into high-power laser-plasma interactions. Discover who we are in People.
   Our state-of-the-art experimental facilites include one of the world's highest average power lasers in its class (350 TW, 5 Hz Ti:Sapphire femtosecond laser). Learn about our facilities in Laboratory.
   Our research is wide ranging across the field of laser-plasma interaction and is also integral to several U.K. and Europe wide collaborations. Find out more in Projects.
   All the group's journal publications are given in Publications but don't forget to investigate the highlights with the link given above.
