CELIA Center for Intense Lasers and Applications

The Center for Intense Lasers and Applications (CELIA) is a joint research unit (UMR5107) involving a partnership between Bordeaux University (UB), the Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) and the National Scientific Research Center (CNRS).

The Center for Intense Lasers and Applications (CELIA) is a joint research unit (UMR5107) involving a partnership between Bordeaux University (UB), the Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) and the National Scientific Research Center (CNRS).

CELIA offers an outstanding opportunity for gathering expertise in Strong Field and/or Ultra-High Intensity Physics (UHI) and Inertial Fusion for Energy (IFE). Indeed, CELIA missions are to pursue high-field laser research, high-energy photon production and their applications, with small-scale lasers, and to study hot and dense laser plasmas from the LULI, LIL laser facilities and the LMJ.

CELIA is an active member of the European Large Lasers Network

Laboratoire pour L’Utilisation des Lasers Intenses

The research topics tackled on the LULI laser facilities, from atoms to stars, and by the lab teams are varied but are all connected either to high-energy-density physics or to ultra-high intensity physics. Exploring the most fundamental aspects of plasma physics, they are conducted along 3 main issues:

  • support very-large-scale international infrastructures, operational or under construction, in which France has invested,
  • prepare societal applications of laser technology,
  • support industrial R&D.

The LULI contribution may be expressed through (i) a deepening of our basic knowledge of the physical mechanisms underlying radiation- or particle-matter interaction and (ii) the validation of concepts, instruments or innovative diagnostic techniques, even facility design.

Groupement de Recherche LEPICE

The Research Group LEPICE brings together various French laboratories working in the field of high energy densities (HED).

The research themes are:

  • Physics of laser-generated shock, equations of state under extreme conditions, planetology, and geophysics;
  • Hydrodynamics and transport in the context of Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF);
  • Laser plasma interaction, and laser absorption mechanisms;
  • Atomic Physics of Dense Plasmas,
  • Laboratory Astrophysics;
  • Secondary sources of radiation and laser-accelerated particles for their applications in the context of HED.

Groupement de Recherche ACO-CHOCOLAS

The Research Group ACO-CHOCOLAS is concerned with the study of materials used at high load speeds. It currently brings together a large multidisciplinary community (40-60 researchers) in the field of:

  • materials science (CEA, IPR, PPRIME, LBMS, PIMM, CNES),
  • processes (LERMPS, PIMM, Centre des Matériaux, PPRIME, LP3, LMG, CNES),
  • numerical simulation (I2M, CERMICS, CEA)
  • and materials in extreme conditions (LULI, CEA, PIMM, PPRIME, CEREGE).
