Abstract

This article presents a choice of components for creating an effective pumping system for a YAG:Nd laser with a single-pulse energy of 60 mJ. An original design is proposed for the amplifier’s pump system. The efficiency of three types of illuminator for the amplifier are experimentally investigated: with selective dielectric coatings, with nonselective metallic coatings, and also with nonselective metallic coatings and composed of phosphate glass doped with samarium ions.
