Paper Abstract

To achieve a variety of experimental conditions, the OMEGA EP laser provides kilojoule-level pulses over a pulse-width range of 0.6 to 100 ps. Precise knowledge of the pulse width is important for laser system safety and the interpretation of experimental results. This paper describes the development and implementation of a single-shot, ultrashort-pulse measurement diagnostic, which provides an accurate characterization of the output pulse shape. We present a brief overview of the measurement algorithm; discuss design considerations necessary for implementation in a complex, userfacility environment; and review the results of the diagnostic commissioning shots, which demonstrated excellent agreement with predictions.
