HEDS Group

Researchers at SLAC's High-Energy Density Science (HEDS) division explore the physical characteristics of warm dense matter, shocks, and intense laser-plasma interactions within the relativistic regime. Employing exceptionally energetic nanosecond lasers, powerful short-pulse lasers, and vivid x-ray sources, they create advanced probing methods based on fundamental principles, complemented by top-notch theoretical and simulation capabilities.
