The Center for High Energy Density Science

We have established a center at the University of Texas devoted to research in high intensity laser matter interactions.

In the original form The Texas Center for High Intensity Laser Science (TCHILS) was established in July 2003 as an NNSA SSAA Center of Excellence under a cooperative agreement (DE-FC52-03NA00156).

As from September 2010 the Texas Center for High Intensity Laser Science has been transformed in the the Center for High Energy Density Science (CHEDS) as an NNSA SSAA Center of Excellence under a cooperative agreement (DE-NA0002008).

CHEDS is funded by the Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration
