Project summary

The main goal of the project is the design and construction of the powerful CO2-laser for CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

1 Hz rep-rate C02-laser with the following parameters will be constracted in frame of the Project;

• pulse energy - 80 - 100 J;

• pulse duration - 10 - 30 ns;

• pergence - 104 rad.

The most scientifically complicated and high technology part is extracted from the whole HELP CERN Project and addressed to the ISTC-the part concerning the "Design and Construction oflhe Powerful CO2-laser".

Experimental technique of TRINITI, 1TEP and CERN will be used to realize the Project. TIR-1 (TRINITI) installation allows the modeling of final parameters for monopulse regime. The manufacture of laser system knots and optical elements has proposed to make into ITEP and TRINITI.

Results of the project will be:

• Construction of the rep-rate CO laser for Heavy Ion Laser Preinjector at CERN

• New scientific data on the highly charged heavy ions generated in laser produced plasma at high laser radiation power density levels.

The role of CERN consists in the joint drawing up of the scientific and technological requirements to parameters of the laser itself and of the Heavy Ion Laser Preinjector in the whole. These requirements will be defined in frame of the joint experimental and theoretical works.


The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.


ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
