PowerLaPs “Innovative Education & Training in High Power Laser Plasmas” 
«Laser Plasma Diagnostics – Theory and Experiments» (Spain) . University of Salamanca



The Laser-Plasma Chair at the University of Salamanca develop laser-plasma physics investigation related to the CLPU experimental activity. Experiments are perfomed in Salamanca and abroad in collaboration with international recognized scientific groups.

The Laser-Plasma chair form young scientists in the field of High Power Lasers plasmas and particle-radiation beams at the University of Salamanca by organising dedicated courses @ USAL and, in collaboration with CLPU, Ms and PhD students in Salamanca.

Within this action we present the 2nd course on laser-plasma processes dedicated to diagnostic techniques. 

Plasmas generated by lasers are characterized by a relativelly short life-time from nanoseconds to picoseconds. Laser-matter interaction can be shorter if femtosecond lasers are used to generate plasma and physical events are also in this range. Plasma diagnostic techniques are continously developed to reduce time and spatial resolution as well to adapt to the High Repetition Rate mode of working.
