Abstract

We report on a joule-level, 1047 nm Nd:YLF master oscillator power amplifier laser with near-diffraction-limited beam quality. The master oscillator and two-stage two-pass amplifier were all-flashlamp-pumped. The laser produced 2 J output pulses with 3 ns duration at 10 Hz pulse repetition rate. High beam quality was achieved by using a liquid stimulated Brillouin scattering mirror and additional astigmatism compensation.
