The first demonstration of laser action in ruby was made in 1960 by T. H. Maiman of Hughes Research Laboratories, USA. Many laboratories worldwide began the search for lasers using different materials, operating at different wavelengths. In the UK, academia, industry and the central laboratories took up the challenge from the earliest days to develop these systems for a broad range of applications. This historical review looks at the contribution the UK has made to the advancement of the technology, the development of systems and components and their exploitation over the last 60 years.

We report on the depletion and power ampli cation of the driving laser pulse in a strongly-drivenlaser wake eld accelerator. Simultaneous measurement of the transmitted pulse energy and temporalshape indicate an increase in peak power from 18711 TW to a maximum of 31812 TW after13 mm of propagation in plasma density of 0:91018cm3. The power ampli cation is correlatedwith the injection and acceleration of electrons in the non-linear wake eld. This process is modeledby including localized redshift and subsequent group delay dispersion at the laser pulse front.

We report experimental evidence for a Rayleigh-Taylor-like instability driven by radiation pressure of an ultraintense (10(21) W/cm(2)) laser pulse. The instability is witnessed by the highly modulated profile of the accelerated proton beam produced when the laser irradiates a 5 nm diamondlike carbon (90% C, 10% H) target. Clear anticorrelation between bubblelike modulations of the proton beam and transmitted laser profile further demonstrate the role of the radiation pressure in modulating the foil. Measurements of the modulation wavelength, and of the acceleration from Doppler-broadening of back-reflected light, agree quantitatively with particle-in-cell simulations performed for our experimental parameters and which confirm the existence of this instability.

We investigate the extension of self-injecting laser wakefield experiments to the regime that will be accessible with the next generation of petawatt-class ultrashort pulse laser systems. Using nonlinear scalings, current experimental trends, and numerical simulations, we determine the optimal laser and target parameters, i.e., focusing geometry, plasma density, and target length, that are required to increase the electron beam energy (to >1 GeV) without the use of external guiding structures.
