Abstract

We demonstrate temporal shaping of 0.35-μm-wavelength pulses produced by a third-harmonic conversion of the output from the Nova Nd:phosphate glass-laser amplifier system for use in inertial confinement fusion experiments. We describe the computer models used to calculate the pulse shape that is required as the input to the amplifier system, the experimental apparatus used to produce these pulses, and the high-power 0.35-μm shaped pulses produced in recent experiments.
