Abstract

Two multi-pass optical schemes of a disk laser amplifier have been proposed. Different variants of both the schemes with the smallest amount of optical elements and a lens in the active element taken into account have been calculated. For 64 passes of radiation through the active element, the average power of 50  W with 10% optical-to-optical efficiency in a pulse-periodic regime with a repetition rate of 10 kHz and a pulse duration of 2 ns was obtained at the amplifier output. The small signal gain amounted to 200.
