Scientific Description
LULI is a user facility developing and operating high-power high-energy pulsed lasers in the ns, ps (LULI2000 and ELFIE) and soon fs (APOLLON) regimes, and the associated experimental equipment. Access is provided to French and European scientists through Laserlab-Europe, and to international scientists through collaborations. LULI is owned and funded by the French institutions CNRS, Ecole Polytechnique, CEA and UPMC.
