Paper Abstract

Megajoule is the laser facility being designed by the French Centre d'Etudes de Limeil-Valenton to obtain ignition and burn. The Laser Megajoule consists of a 240 beam high-energy glass laser system and target chamber, intended for inertial confinement fusion research. About 2 MJ at 351 nm are required. To effectively control the optical pulse on target for different types of experiments, the front end system must be versatile enough to easily control many pulse parameters over a large range. The Megajoule front end system is composed of two major subsystem: the pulse generation system and preamplifier. The following descriptions track the optical signal path through the pulse generation system and initial results are discussed.
