Paper Abstract

High power XeCl laser system and experimental results of diffraction limited laser beam amplification are described. Beyond the preamplifier, the 5 cm X 6 cm laser beam contained 50% of the radiation energy in the diffraction core. At the output from the system an irradiation brightness of 2 X 1014 W/cm-2cr-1 was obtained. Minimum divergence near 0.05 mrad of output beam was restricted to turbulence of air and optics elements. A numerical model of the amplification of the radiation, taking onto account the influence of the amplified spontaneous emission, was developed.
