Radiation sources

The research carried out at the APOLLON facility aims to a better understanding of radiation sources’ characteristics and their physical limits, mainly in terms of photon number and energy. The aim is to produce very-high intense light pulse, but of short wavelength, such as X-rays for example, and from few optical cycles down to tens of attosecond durations (10-18 second). Thanks to these characteristics, APOLLON offers a wide range of experimental techniques.

These secondary radiation sources, coupled with the APOLLON’s unique characteristics, provides the opportunity for developping experimental studies called pump-probes in a large range of parameters.

APOLLON’s scientists are particularly interested:

· Study of plasma X-rays
· Harmonic sources
