Abstract
Since the beginning of the 90's the generation of high-intense laser pulses has known an unprecedented evolution thanks to the conjunction of the possibility of the Chirped Pulse Technique and the availability of spectrally broad-band laser media. Lasers capable of producing petawatt pulses can now be built on few optical tables in a small laboratory. We review the generation and the amplification of ultra-short pulses by the Chirped Pulse Amplification technique.
