Abstract

A diode-pumped injection-seeded Nd:YAG laser system with an average output power of 38 W is described. The laser operates at 300Hz with pulse energies up to 130mJ. The temporal pulse shape is nominally flat in time and the pulse width is user selectable from 350 to 600ps. In addition, the spatial profile of the beam is near top hat with contrast <10%.
