High contrast multi-terawatt pulse generation using chirped pulse amplification on the VULCAN laser facility

Abstract:
High power (8 TW), ultra-short (2.4 ps), pulses have been generated using chirped pulse amplification techniques on the VULCAN Nd: glass laser. A novel oscillator was developed as a driver producing ≈ ps pulses at 105 nm. The oscillator output was stretched prior to amplification and compressed at an aperture of 150 mm. The contrast ratio obtained was ≈ 106, which is suitable for laser plasma interaction studies. © 1993.
