Abstract

We demonstrate a nonlinear crystal-based short pulse recirculation cavity for trapping the second harmonic of an incident high-power laser pulse. This scheme aims to increase the efficiency and flux of Compton-scattering-based light sources. We demonstrate up to 40× average power enhancement of frequency-doubled submillijoule picosecond pulses, and 17× average power enhancement of 177mJ, 10ps, 10Hz pulses.
