Having developed and installed TW systems all around the world for more than 15 years, THALES stands out as the best choice for providing reliable laser system with performances at an optimum level, and ensuring the easiest upgradeability and maintenance.
The QUARK series integrates the most innovative technologies such as:
- The highest energy pumps with unprecedented beam quality (SAGA,RHEA, GAIA, GAIA HP, ATLAS, THEIA)
- XPW filter (co-patent THALES-LOA) for contrast improvement Anti-transverse lasing crystal mount
- Anti-transverse lasing crystal mount
Thales has already delivered and installed petawatt systems in the USA : BELLA (1.3 PW at 1 Hz) and in Romania : ELI NP (2x1 PW at 1 Hz and 2x10 PW at 1 shot/min) and CETAL-INFLPR (1 PW at 0.1 Hz).
With dozens of systems installed worldwide and six commissioned petawatt lasers, Thales has demonstrated a unique experience in the field of high peak power laser laser being the first and only one to have demonstrated a peak power exceeding 10 PetaWatts.
Besides technological breakdowns, these successes are the results of Thales capability to manage very large and complex projects with high level of interaction with our customers.
