Paper Abstract

Results of theoretical simulation and field tests of a shock wave pumped solid state laser are presented. The laser has demonstrated real capabilities to initiate explosives. Operating without external sources of electrical power, the laser is pumped with the radiation from converging axially symmetric shock waves in argon.
