Paper Abstract

This paper is focused on the research of SSD and CPP carried out on TIL. A bulk phase modulator with 9.2-GHz modulation frequency is adopted in SSD. The output spectrum of the phase modulator is stable and the residual amplitude modulation is small. FM-to-AM effect caused by free-space propagation after using smoothing by spectral dispersion is theoretically and experimentally studied. Results indicate inserting a dispersion grating in places with larger beam aperture alleviates the FM-to-AM effect, suggesting minimizing free-space propagation and adopting image relay. Experiments indicate when the number of color cycles (Nc) adopts 1, imposing of SSD with 4.26 times diffraction limit (TDL) did not lead to pinhole closure in the spatial filters of the preamplifier with 20 TDL and main amplifier with 26 TDL. Experimental results also indicate SSD didn’t influence the load capacity of the laser facility. The contrast of the 440-μm diameter focal spot with 95% energy included using SSD and CPP drops to 0.47, comparing to 1.71 not using SSD and CPP. When the pulse width of the third harmonic wave is 1 ns and the energy is 1115 J, no damage is found in CPP and other final optics. The experiments solves some key technical problems using SSD and CPP on high-power laser facilities, and provides a flexible platform for the laser-plasma interaction experiments.
