Paper Abstract

We have proposed and designed a diode-pumped solid-state laser (DPSSL) driver for inertial fusion energy (IFE) which consists of water-cooled zig-zag path Nd:glass slab amplifiers. A driver module has 10 kJ total output energy at 351 nm and operates at 12 Hz with 10.4 percent overall efficiency. The laser driver producing 4 MJ blue output for IFE will consists of 400 modules. To confirm the design, we are developing a small scale DPSSL module of 10J X 10Hz laser output at 1053 nm.
