Abstract

A laser-diode-pumped high-repetition-rate zigzag slab Nd:YAG oscillator–amplifier system is developed as the pumping source of a high-average-power and terawatt Ti:sapphire chirped pulse amplification laser system. This system can produce a greater than 2-J high-energy fundamental laser pulse at a repetition rate of 100 Hz. The frequency-doubled energy with a diffusion-bonded KTP crystal is 1 J at a repetition rate of 100 Hz.
