12 J, 10 Hz diode-pumped Nd:YAG distributed active mirror amplifier chain with ASE suppression.

Abstract

Experimental amplification of 10-ns pulses to an energy of 12.2 J at the repetition rate of 1-10 Hz is reported from a diode-pumped room-temperature distributed active mirror amplifier chain (DAMAC) based on Nd:YAG slabs. Efficient power scaling at the optical-optical efficiency of 20.6% was achieved by suppressing the transverse parasitic oscillation with… (More)
