Logos Technologies Team to Provide High-Energy Laser to Washington State University

August 6, 2014

Logos Technologies, Fairfax, Virginia, in partnership with the University of Rochester’s Laboratory for Laser Energetics, has received an award to design, build and install a sophisticated high-energy laser at the Washington State University-led Dynamic Compression Sector at the Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory. The Logos Technologies-led team will provide a laser-driven shock compression capability to produce high pressure, short duration shock waves. By coupling tunable, high energy X-ray beams to state-of-the-art shock wave drivers, the Dynamic Compression Sector will enable unprecedented, real-time atomic-scale investigation of materials subjected to extreme dynamic compression. The team will design and deliver a frequency tripled glass laser based on proven technologies, including state-of-the-art beam-smoothing techniques developed at the Laboratory for Laser Energetics. The laser will deliver 100 joules of energy in consistent, accurate and well-characterized nanosecond-scale pulses.
