Scientists at Britain's Rutherford Appleton Laboratory have fired the first test shot from a high-power Krypton Fluoride laser, which they hope will provide information on nuclear fusion. The laser will also be used to study plasma physics, simulating the environment at the heart of stars, and also to investigate X-ray lasers.

Titania was designed and built over two years and will provide short bursts of radiation using chirped pulse amplification and longer bursts using Raman beam combination.
