Developments and Upgrades on the Artemis Laser Facility
Artemis is the CLF's facility for ultrafast XUV science. Experiments on Artemis use high harmonics to investigate ultrafast electron dynamics in condensed matter and gas-phase molecules, and for coherent lensless imaging. In this talk, I shall describe some of the current developments and upgrades being undertaken on the Artemis laser facility, including multi- millijoule carrier envelope phase (CEP) stabilised few-cycle pulse generation and characterisation in the short-wave infrared (SWIR) spectral region for generating high harmonics in the water window (280-530eV), and a 100kHz ytterbium pumped OPCPA delivering up to several hundred microjoules of 30-100fs duration CEP stabilized pulses in the SWIR and MIR.
