Power Lasers Department
HPL department is the division of General Physics Institute of the Russian Academy of Science. Main directions of research are closely connected with development of advanced high power lasers. Extensive scientific research of various types of lasers and laser technologies, high intensity laser radiation interaction with matter have earned a lot of respect among scientific community all over the world.
Wide spectrum of HPL Dept. of GPI RAS scientific results is
regularly presented in the various domestic and International
conferences and published in scientific
periodicals. The HPL Department has made a valuable input into development of various branches of laser physics - physical and
technical fundamentals of high intensity laser optics and adaptive
investigation of physical processes in a high volume self-controlled
discharges, creation of high power CW, pulsed and pulse-repetitive
laser systems, generation of TW level picosecond 10m laser pulses, parametric generation of high peak power THz radiation, application of high power lasers for
effective protection of valuable objects and water surface cleaning, medical applications. Recent results of
investigations of laser diode arrays phase-locking and mechanisms of
shock waves merging for a rockets launch by high repetition rate pulse-periodic laser (“Impulsar”), long
conductive channel based on "Impulsar" technology are under very
intensive discussion in our country and abroad.
HPL Department includes theoretic group occupied by investigation on interaction of atoms and molecules with intense laser radiation including physics of wave packets, generation of attosecond pulses, entanglement of quantum states at spontaneous parametric scattering etc.
Research associates of the Department are highly
skilled specialists and many of them have academic degrees. See a photo of our team (1995) below...
