Development of high-energy and high-repetition rate laser using Yb:YAG is a subject of growing attention to use many scientific and industrial applications. Especially, The Laser Wake Field Acceleration (LWFA) is receiving a lot of attention in the world [1-3]. Laser driven plasma accelerator (LPA) has potential to accelerate electron bunches to high energies in mm-size acceleration length, and still provides high quality bunch characteristics like: high bunch charge, femtosecond duration bunch length, and high pointing stability . However, the accelerated electron charge is no many compare to radio frequency accretion. Therefore, the high repetition rate and high peak power laser is required. We have developed 1 J, 10 Hz cryogenically-cooled active mirror amplifier using Total-reflection active-mirror (TRAM) architecture . At present, we are developing the 100 J, 100 Hz cryogenically-cooled active-mirror amplifier using Yb:YAG . The front end for the laser system is consists of CW distributed feedback laser diode, EO pulse slicer, which generates laser pulse of several ns duration at a pulse energy of few nJ. This pulse amplified up to around 200 mJ in the regenerative amplifier and multi-pass amplifiers using by cryogenically-cooled Yb:YAG. This pulse is amplified energy of 100J through two stage cryogenically-cooled active-mirror amplifier.
