Three laser beams are available in this experimental area - the ns NORTH and SOUTH beams and the ns BLUE beam - according to a fixed irradiation geometry. The target chamber is a octogonal vacuum vessel, with a diameter of around 1.5m. The vacuum inside can be pushed down to 10-2 mbar (10-4 Pa) in 30 minutes. The room is currently not radioprotected.
A target lab is available at the LULI laboratory.
Its main function is to provide the necessary skills to manufacture and characterize targets used for the experiments on the LULI laser facilities. Various designs and aspects are studied, ranging from simple sheets of solid materials to liquid or gaseous
