We present the design and performance of the Texas Petawatt Laser, which produces a 186 J 167 fs pulse based on the combination of optical parametric chirped pulse amplification (OPCPA) and mixed Nd:glass amplification. OPCPA provides the majority of the gain and is used to broaden and shape the seed spectrum, while amplification in Nd:glass accounts for(More)
We studied the effect of carbon substituted by boron on polycrystalline samples of SmNiC(2) in the B content range 0 ⩽ x ⩽ 0.200. The structural parameters were determined from x-ray measurements by Rietveld analysis. The structural analysis shows that the cell volume increases as the B content increases indicating that the substitution produces an internal(More)
We report observation of electron self-injection and acceleration in a plasma accelerator driven by the Texas petawatt laser at 10<sup>17</sup> cm<sup>&#x2212;3</sup> plasma density, an order of magnitude lower density than previous self-injected laser-plasma accelerators.
The effects of Pr substitution in the structure and ferroelectric response for the Sr(1-x)Pr(x)Bi(2)Ta(2)O(9) (SBT-Pr) compound have been studied. Rietveld refinement of the x-ray diffraction patterns indicates that the Pr ion progressively replaces the Sr site in the A 2(1)am space group structure. The solubility of Pr in solid solution is around 15%. The(More)
