Pressing ‘Fire’ on the Most Powerful Laser by Dr Ceri Brenner, UK Research and Innovation, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory

When the Central Laser Facility’s super-intense lasers are fired at a solid, liquid or a gas, they super-heat to millions of degrees in less than a trillionth of a second and rip apart the material structure to transform into plasma—the fourth state of matter.

The Friday Lunch & Lecture Events have been running for more than 22 years. The Lectures are free to attend for IET members and non-members. All are welcome.

If you require Lunch it must be pre booked with both Tony Davies & John Fuller. Please also book the lecture as we may have limited room capacity.

The optional two course lunch with wine currently costs £17.50. and must be paid for in advance at the counter of the Faraday Kitchen, the receipt giving admission to the lunch.

If attending lunch, arrive before 11.45 and sign-in at the Faraday Centre reception. From April 2019 it is expected to cost £18.35.  For attending only the lecture, arrive before 13.45 and sign in for the event; this is separate to the IET Faraday Centre reception signing-in.
