Strong field science has become one of the most active areas of research with the development of ultra-high power lasers. Ever since the introduction of the chirped pulse amplification technique in 1985, available laser power has increased dramatically. The coupling of the CPA technique with picosecond and femtosecond laser technology has made compact ultrashort high-power lasers readily accessible, boosting their usage in almost all areas of science, medicine and engineering. Fascinatingly ultra-high power lasers with power exceeding 100 TW or even 1 PW are now available or being prepared in a number of institutes around the world. Starting from the development of the 0.85-PW laser…
