Abstract

An optical differentiation in a regenerative amplifier with a temperature-tuned volume Bragg grating (VBG) as an intracavity spectral filter is demonstrated for the first time, to the author’s knowledge. 12mJ150ps pulses with a TEM00 beam profile have been generated at the 5Hz repetition rate in the nanosecond-pulse-seeded regenerative amplifier with a VBG that is temperature detuned from the central wavelength.
