Paper Abstract

A high-power Nd:glass laser system (Sinmyung I) has been constructed and tested in KAIST[1]. In this system, we used a Nd:YLF laser as a master oscillator, a 4-pass amplifier for pre-amplification[2], Nd-doped phosphate glasses for rod amplifiers, and spatial filtering and image relaying units. The system has demonstrated in excess of 80 J at 40 ps full width at half-maximum (FWHM) pulse duration. Output gains, energies and spatial profiles were measured at each amplification stage. X-ray generation experiments in Cu bulk target was done using this system.
