Strong Field Physics aims to explore fascinating and novel regimes involving the interaction of high-intensity lasers with solid or gaseous matter. This fundamental research is possible due to the availability of a broad class of top-notch ACP laser facilities featuring world-class systems such as few-cycle ultra-short pulses or record-breaking peak powers.
