The symposium “From Fundamental Physics to Societal Applications” [IZEST-Tokyo] will take place in Tokyo, Japan, from 18-20 November 2013.

In the framework of the International Coherent Amplification Network programme [ICAN], the symposium will discuss the possible applications of the Zetta-Exawatt Science and Technology [IZEST]. Amplifications, allowed by extreme energetic and peak powered laser beam, offer new horizons to the high-energy physics. Among the applications…

The International Coherent Amplification Network [ICAN] held a two-day symposium on new fibre laser-based accelerator concepts at CERN from 27 to 28 June 2013. The symposium assembled a wide range of scientists ranging from particle physicists to telecommunications engineers to explore how a new architecture of high intensity lasers could contribute to the next generation of particle accelerators.
The idea behind the use of lasers for particle acceleration exploits the fact that ultrashort laser pulses can generate electric field intensities sufficient to drive plasma wakefield dynamics which can accelerate electrons to GeV energies…

The International Coherent Amplification Network [ICAN] project has launched a newsletter. The first issue – published earlier this year – provides news and information on the ICAN project and its events.

ICAN aims to bring together the laser, fibre and high-energy physics communities, with the aim of collaborating on a novel laser concept: one which will use fibre lasers to produce high energy and repetition rate pulse sources. Such technology would be needed to increase the electron acceleration rate…
