Paper Abstract

The first terawatt picosecond CO2 laser, PITER I, is under commissioning at the Brookhaven Accelerator Test Facility. PITER I consists of a single-mode TEA oscillator, semiconductor optical switch, and two stages of the multi- atmosphere amplifiers. We report on design, simulation, and tests of the 10 ATM final amplifier that allows multi- terawatt peak power extraction in a picosecond laser pulse.
