What is the highest repetition rate achieved for pulsed Terawatt and Petawatt-order lasers?
In Europe, the SYLOS3 laser system boasts one of the highest repetition rates 1kHz for high intensity lasers 15[TW] (December 2020) (see Optics.)
SYLOS is a part of the ELI-ALPS European Facility in Szeged Hungary, which has operates/plans for four main laser beamlines, operating at different regimes of repetition rates and peak powers:
- Single Cycle (SYLOS): 1 kHz, >35 mJ, <6.6 fs (100 mJ version in progress) (~10-20[TW])
- High Field (HF): 10 Hz, 34 J, <17 fs (~ 2[PW])
- High Repetition Rate (HR): 100 kHz, >5 mJ, <6 fs (~ 1 [TW] slightly less)
- MID-Infrared (MIR): 100 kHz, >140 μJ, 4 optical cycle pulses at 3.2 μm
