High Intensity and Energy Physics

Visual representation of a fundamental physics experimentAnother field of physics, the science of laser-induced Shocks and Compression generates an important scientific activity. Three main types of shocks can be distinguished:

  • Laser shock peening, which consists in significantly improving the surface properties of metals (resistance to corrosion, cracking, friction, fatigue, etc.) and which therefore makes it possible to optimize the lightening and/or to optimize the life span of metal structures. (aeronautics, automotive, nuclear industry,…)
  • Laser Bond Inspection, which actively detects in-situ and on-line bonding defects in composite materials (aeronautics, automotive,…),
  • Dynamic Compression, which studies the physics of materials under very high pressure up to hundreds of GPa. Dynamic compression experiments on geological materials are of great interest in Astrophysics for understanding the composition and physical state of the deep interior of the Earth and other planets including exoplanets. It helps the to understand the formation and evolution of planets in general. This domain can also create new materials that do not exist on earth and will give in a near future the opportunity of new applications in industry and societal applications. Dynamic compression experiments are often located in accelerators facility to take advantage of X-rays as a diagnostic.Amplitude has the world largest portfolio of sub-nanosecond and nanosecond high energy Lasers dedicated to Shock and Compression applications.
    Our TITAN, ELITE, INTREPID, and PREMIUMITE product lines offer energy ranging from a few Joule to hundreds of joules at unprecedented rep-rate and with versatile pulse-shaping capability if requested.
