LaPlaSS – Laser-Plasma Summer School

The Laser-Plasma Chair at the University of Salamanca (LaPlas) was created by CLPU in order to promote and develop LAser-Plasma Physics in Salamanca and in Spain, to support the experimental activities in the PW system VEGA @ CLPU, to drive national and international user community around Salamanca, and to form and train a new generation of researchers in the field of High-Power Lasers plasmas and particle-radiation beams to enable them to make optimum use of laser facilities in novel applications. This last is the context where our specialized summer school was born.

The Laser-Plasma Summer School has been created by the Laser-Plasma Chair and the CLPU and it is supported by the Laserlab Europe EU network. The intend of the school is to introduce and include a new generation of students in Laser-Plasma Physics; Láser-Plasma is a short name which meaning includes all the physical process that happens in extreme conditions where a PW-class laser as VEGA is focused onto matter. PW-class lasers are nowadays a well-established reality in Europe and abroad and their main characteristics are the extremely short duration (down to femtoseconds) and the possibility to work at a high-repetition-rate.
