Summary, in English

We present a simple experimental setup that makes possible the measurement of the beam section at focus under full-power conditions. We demonstrate that a 1.5-TW laser system can be focused down to a 13.5-μm-diameter spot using conventional lens focalization, thus achieving laser intensities of up to 1018 W/cm2.
