The Frascati Laser for Acceleration and Multidisciplinary Experiments (FLAME) has been installed in the SPARC_LAB Test Facility to study the laser-matter interaction with solids and gases at high laser intensities, up to 1020 W/cm2. The ultra-intense laser pulses are employed to study the interaction with matter for many purposes: electron acceleration through LWFA, ion and proton generation exploiting the TNSA mechanism, study of new radiation sources and development of new electron diagnostics.
