Since their starting steps in 1985, Ultra Intense Lasers (UIL) have been developed to generate femto -second pulses with typical high performance parameters: Peak Power up to~ 1000 TW = PW - Pulse Duration < 20 fs - Pulse Energy~ 2 Joules-Rep. Rate ~ 10 Hz- λ~ 800 nm When such photons are properly focused on a target, creation of simultaneous exotic conditions within an extremely short time are developed, which have never been achieved before. Non linear optical processes are dominating and material is totally ionized providing large charge densities of around > 10 24 cm -3 and energetic electrons of 10 3 to 10 6 ev

FORMING THE SUN IN THE LABORATORY Non equilibrium dynamics in a violently driven systems lead to Non- Maxwelian particle distribution and Gigantic magnitudes simulating the conditions expected for BLACK HOLES where: Magnetic fields of the order 109 gauss, Electric fields of 1010V/ cm, Pressures of the order 10 9 bars and e - Temperatures of the order of 10 8 K are formed.

Ideal conditions to establish an UIL LABORATORY.
