Light sources

A number of light sources are currently under development as part of the project. Details for these systems can be accessed here:

  • Few-cycle source

    A few-cycle source based on hollow fibre pulse compression, for the generation of attosecond pulses.

  • Few-cycle OPCPA source

    Construction of a high energy OPCPA based source based, as a drive laser for attosecond pulse generation.

  • Raman based source development

    Demonstration of a Raman based scheme for the generation of high power, isolated, sub-femtosecond pulses.

  • Attosecond XUV source

    Development of an attosecond XUV source
