Abstract

Miró software has been used intensively to simulate the Laser Megajoule (LMJ) with the treatment of amplification, frequency conversion, and both temporal/spatial smoothing of the beam for nanosecond pulses. We show that the software is able to model most relevant aspects of the petawatt PETAL laser chain in the subpicosecond regime, from the front-end to the focal spot with a broadband treatment of the amplification and compression stages, including chromatism compensation in the laser chain, segmentation and recombination of the beams on the second compression stage, and focusing by an off-axis parabola.
