Technological performance is key for scientific research
On July 30, 2020 at 7:50 am local time, an Atlas V rocket will lift off with NASA’s Perseverance rover from Cape Canaveral in Florida, en route to the Red Planet. This is a decisive moment in NASA’s Mars 2020 mission, designed to study the surface of Mars, look for trac
Our latest edition of the Thales Laser Masterclass training developped in partnership with the Polytech Paris-Sud and Paris-Sud University, has successfully been held this autumn.
The most powerful laser system in the world developed and installed by Thales in Romania with the capacity to deliver pulses with the record power level of 10 petawatts, was formally accepted on October 11, 2019 by our Customer, the National Institute of Physics and Nuc
In the presence of Chinese President Xi Jinping and French President Emmanuel Macron, Thales, Peking University and Ecole Polytechnique signed on Nov 6, 2019 in Beijing at the Great Hall of the People a strategic Agreement for future cooperation in Scientific Research
The Extreme Light Infrastructure for Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP) project in Romania has recently reached a significant milestone: the ultra-high intensity laser system developed by Thales has successfully generated its first pulses at a peak power level of 10 petawatts (10
When scientists first glimpsed the possibility of opening up new knowledge about the universe through ultra-powerful lasers, they faced a challenge: no laser at the time was remotely powerful enough. But ten years later, Thales has brought them to the verge of realising
Our customer the Centre for Advanced Laser Applications (CALA) located in Garching has big ambitions. One among them is the development of novel biomedical imaging technologies based on high-energy X-rays.
The first arm of the ELI NP laser system operating for the first time at a power level of 3 PetaWatt
The programme has now reached a major milestone, with the first arm of the laser system operating for the first time at a power level of 3 PetaWatt.
