Paper Abstract

The Beamlet laser is a full-scale, single-aperture scientific prototype of the frequency-tripled Nd:glass laser for the proposed National Ignition Facility. At aperture sizes of 30 cm by 30 cm and 34 cm by 34 cm using potassium dihydrogen phosphate crystals of 32 cm by 32 cm and 37 cm by 37 cm, respectively, we have obtained up to 8.3 kJ of third harmonic energy at 70% - 80% whole beam conversion efficiency.
