Title: Characterization and performance of a high-power all-solid-state drive laser for application in high-current photo-cathode injectors

Abstract

This paper describes the characterization and performance of a diode-pumped, high-power, picosecond laser system designed for high-current photo-cathode accelerator injectors at repetition rates of both 74.85 MHz and 748.5 MHz. A comprehensive set of measurements and analyses are presented for the amplifier gain, thermally induced beam size variation, pulse width, harmonic conversion efficiency, beam quality, power stability, beam pointing stability, and timing jitter. This laser demonstrates excellent overall system performance.
