Title: High Reliability Arbitrary Pulse Pattern Laser Amplifier

Abstract

Arbitrary pulse pattern lasers are of interest to the Department of Energy (DoE) for several applications such as neutralizing, notching, tailoring, and diagnosing H-minus beams. For these applications, high reliability and remote operation are of critical importance to minimize down time. Lasers that cover an optical table are not desirable as compactness (~1 m 3 volume) is also important. Locking of the laser pulses to an external source with low jitter is another key performance parameter. Q-Peak has performed research on a hybrid laser system that address the pulse flexibility and pulse energy requirements of the DoE for the above application. In the Phase I program, we focused on the design of a hybrid laser source that has these properties. Emphasis was placed on reducing component count to increase reliability.
