We know that lasers are widely used for various applications such as light-wave communications and CD players, etc. An important feature of lasers is a possibility of generating a very strong light beam. Recently, a trillion watt (terawatt) class laser system became available with a table-top size. By using this terawatt laser pulse, the generation of X-rays and high-energy particles is thought to be possible on a comparatively small scale, which can be applied to X-ray lithography and radiotherapy, etc. In this talk, Dr. Kiminori Kondo will discuss the ultra-short, high-peak power laser and its applications.
