Paper Abstract

Solid state pulse generators with controlled multi-kilovolt outputs are now production items. The range of applications within the field of lasers has increased so that they can control laser pulse width and shape, cavity dumping and seeding, stage isolation and coherence reduction for smoothing irradiation. Such pulse generators can now be built with embedded computer systems for remote control, interrogation and diagnosis of pulser parameters. Diagnostic equipment to monitor laser beam profiles with respectable time resolution also employs these pulsed generators.
