A recently developed Pockels ceil driver able to operate at any repetition rate up to 1 kHz makes it practical to build a regenerative amplifier from a continuously pumped Nd:YAG laser. The amplifier output is approximately 1 mJ in a 100 ps pulse with ± 1% energy stability. The seed pulse is from a CW modelocked Nd:YAG oscillator (Spectra Physics, series 3000). This combination provides an ideal source for a synchronously pumped dye laser and high repetition rate amplifier.1
