- In the presence of Chinese President Xi Jinping and French President Emmanuel Macron, Thales is greatly honored to sign a strategic Cooperation Agreement with Peking University and École Polytechnique for future cooperation on scientific research

- This agreement aims to fully integrate international teams and strengths, promote trilateral R&D and joint facility collaborations in areas such as high energy, high density and laser physics.

- These ambitious projects are linked to the discoveries of Gérard Mourou, professor at École Polytechnique, and in particular CPA (Chirped Pulse Amplification), for which the professor was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2018.

In the presence of Chinese President Xi Jinping and French President Emmanuel Macron, Thales, Peking University and Ecole Polytechnique signed a strategic Agreement for  future cooperation in Scientific Research in the area of Physics.  The signature took place today in Beijing at the Great Hall of the People.

In support of Peking University’s ambitions to fulfill China's “National Major Science and Technology Infrastructure Project” and develop “Laser-Driven Multi-Beam Facilities”, this agreement aims to promote trilateral R&D and joint facility collaborations in areas such as high energy, high density and laser physics, setting a solid foundation for future cooperation in Scientific Research between France and China.

These ambitious projects are linked to the discoveries of Gérard Mourou, professor at École Polytechnique, and in particular CPA (Chirped Pulse Amplification), for which the professor was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2018.  Gerard Mourou’s work is the fruit of a longstanding laser research partnership between his laboratory and Thales, whose leading laser technology pushes forward every day the use of CPA to new boundaries.
