Abstract

Pulses of 20-TW peak power have been generated at 1064 nm using the chirped-pulse-amplification technique with a 90-mm output-aperture Nd:silicate glass amplification line. This system delivers 60 J of energy in a chirped pulse of 600-psec duration, with a capacity to maintain a 3.5-nm output bandwidth. These chirped pulses are compressed to 1.2 psec with an energy of 24 J by using large holographic gold-coated 1740-lines/mm diffraction gratings.
