Paper Abstract

We present the key features of design and performance of PROGRESS-P CPA Nd:YLF/Nd:glass laser facility capable of producing 1.5-ps pulses and a power up to 30 TW at the wavelength 1053 nm for laser- plasma experiments in ultrahigh irradiance on the target up to 1019 W/cm2. We describe voltage pulse drivers based on drift step recovery diodes which produce output voltage up to 15 kV, rise time approximately 1 ns, jitter of 100 ps and repetition rate up to 10 kHz to electro-optical devices.
