Phenomena occurring in the laser plasma interaction are majorly governed by such parameters of plasma as its charge density distribution, ion constitution and ionisation state. By controlling target's geometry, compound and dynamics we can produce combine and optimise such processes as particle acceleration and radiation production. It is therefore crucial to master a wide range of target configurations (gas, solid, liquid). The dedicated laboratory, under construction, aims to develop and explore novel target designs considering their hydrodynamic, mechanic and atomic properties, and the proper set of diagnostics.
