Laser guiding of electron beams in the advanced test acceleration
The recently demonstrated technique of laser guiding has been used to propagate successfully a 10-kA relativistic electron beam 95 m through the Advanced Test Accelerator and postaccelerator beamline. The maximum transverse ...
Electron-beam guiding and phase-mix damping by a laser-ionized channel
An ultraviolet-laser-ionized channel in low-pressure benzene has been successfully used to guide and focus a 7-kA relativistic electron beam over distances up to 4 m. In addition, phase-mix damping of coherent, transverse ...
Large aperture harmonic conversion experiments at Lawrence Livermore National Lanoratory
Large aperture harmonic conversion experiments to 2 omega (532 nm), 3 omega (355 nm), 4 omega (266 nm) on the Argus laser at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are described. Harmonically converted energies of up ...
Gain saturation in Nd:doped laser materials
Saturation of gain in Nd:doped silicate, phosphate, and fluorophosphate glasses, and in doped crystals of YAG and YLF was observed during amplification of 1064 and 1053 nm pulses with durations of 1. 0, 9. 0, and 50 ns. ...
Solid-state disk amplifiers for fusion-laser systems
A review is presented of the design, performance, and operation of large-aperture (10-46 cm) solid-state disk amplifiers for use in laser systems. We present design data, prototype tests, simulations, and projections for ...
Optical and lasing properties of fluorophosphate glass
Neodymium-doped fluorophosphate glass is a laser material newly-developed for use in high power laser fusion systems. The low refractive index (n ∼ 1.45) and low dispersion (Abbe number ∼90) of fluorophosphate glasses give ...
