Advanced Course of Fundaments on Laser-Plasma Physics

18 – 30 September 2017 (F4 Room – Science Building)

Laser-driven plasma is the primary subject of investigation in the modern High power laser-facilities distributed all over the European community. The Centro de Láseres Pulsados (CLPU) is one of the most representative facilities in this area and at the moment is operating a 200 TW system and finalizing the implementation of 1 PW system. Both the systems work at 1-10 Hz.


The relevant presence of the Spanish Center for Pulsed Lasers –CLPU– and the approaching of the first experimental campaign is emerging the necessity of more specific formation in plasma physics and more in laser-plasma physics. This is the course schedule (every day from 16:00 to 19:00):


Monday 18/09/2017 Introduction to Plasma State (Prof. Luca Volpe)
Tuesday 19/09/2017 Phenomenology of Laser-Plasma physics (Prof. Luca Volpe)
Wednesday 20/09/2017 Plasma modeling (Prof. Luca Volpe)
Thursday 21/09/2017 Plasma waves (Prof. Luca Volpe)
Friday 22/09/2017 EM Propagation in Plasma (Prof. Luca Volpe)
Monday 25/09/2017 Parametric instabilities (Prof. Luca Volpe)
Tuesday 26/09/2017 Laser-driven particle beams (Prof. Luca Volpe)
Wednesday 27/09/2017 Laser-Plasma Experiments (Prof. Luca Volpe)
Thursday 28/09/2017 Particle in cell simulation (Prof. Javier Honrubia)
Friday 29/09/2017 Under-dense laser-plasma acceleration (Dr. Giancarlo Gatti)

A fourth part devoted to practical training will be organised at the CLPU and it will consist on direct involvement into experimental campaign on the two operating systems VEGA-1 & VEGA-2.
