SummaryThe article gives a historical account of the activities of the Laser-Plasma-Group at the MPI for Quantum Optics (MPQ) including the period prior to the formation of the institute. The investigated objects of research have mainly dealt with fundamental issues of inertial fusion using laser beams and far less with questions related to the technical realisation of this concept.
