ATLAS under construction - April 2017

At the Centre for Advanced Laser Applications (CALA), Max Gilljohann and colleagues re-assemble the ATLAS laser. Originally sited in the Laboratory for Extreme Photonics (LEX), the instrument was dismantled and transferred to CALA three months ago by the same team, led by Prof. Stefan Karsch. An updated version, ATLAS 3000, will later serve as the primary light source for experiments at CALA.
