Magnetic Fields in Laboratory High Energy Density Plasmas (LaB)

The “LaB” workshop series aims at bringing together, in a transdisciplinary forum, scientists interested in the emerging areas of coupling laboratory high-energy-density (HED) plasmas and external and internal intense magnetic fields in varied domains, including plasma astrophysics, inertial fusion, and particle acceleration. Magnetic fields have been widely recognized to have profound effects in these areas, but specific progress is hindered by limited theoretical understanding and diagnostics capabilities. The main aim of such a forum is to serve as an exchange of ideas, discussion of theoretical and experimental work that has been done, and to explore potential new collaborations in these critical areas.

Cremlin workshop
Key technological issues in construction and exploitation of 100 PW class lasers

The project CREMLIN (Connecting Russian and European Measures for Large-scale Research Infrastructures) is intended to foster scientific cooperation between the Russian Federation and the European Union in the development and scientific exploitation of large-scale research infrastructures. The laser complex XCELS developed at IAP RAS provides a wonderful opportunity for establishing and enhancing scientific cooperation and strong networks between this Russian megascience facility and the European research infrastructures. Identification of key technological issues relevant to 100 PW class laser systems is the principal goal of the workshop.
