The Light Beyond the Clouds

Beyond the dark clouds there is light. Is this a topical description for the past, present and future of our industry? In the past, it was our ambition to travel fast and above the weather that inspired the development of the jet engine by its inventors, Sir Frank Whittle and Dr Hans von Ohain in the late 1930s and early 1940s.

On the Cover of HPL: High-energy hybrid femtosecond laser system demonstrating 2 × 10 PW capability

The pursue for high peak power is driven by the uncharted territory of knowledge that this may unlock, from basic science to applied one. The optical path towards these phenomenal powers may be one of the natural ones when we observe the critical role that the light is playing in the universe.


On the Cover of HPL: Ultra-broadband near-infrared NOPAs based on the nonlinear crystals BiBO and YCOB

Ultrashort and broadband laser sources are formidable tools for a wide range of scientific areas. In the field of ultrafast science, laser pulses lasting only a few optical cycles are used to generate secondary sources employed in probing matter at atomic scales. Such sources are also widely adopted in applications in ultrafast spectroscopy, pump-probe in chemistry, and optical coherence tomography among many other fields.
