PHEBUS - A NEW AND POWERFUL LASER FACILITY FOR I.C.F. RESEARCH
A new laser facility, PHEBUS, has been built in the Centre d'Etudes de Limeil-Valenton, for Inertial Confinement fusion research. The two beams deliver 20 kJ of 1.05 mum light which is focused on targets (typical full width at half maximum (FWHM) of the focal spot is 140 mum), laser wavelength (1.05 + 0.53 + 0.35 mum) and pulse duration (0.1 to a few nanosecond) can be very easily changed as a function of the type of targets or experiments. New plasma diagnostics have also been designed and installed and a large effort has been devoted to special target fabrication.
