Paper Abstract

The paper describes the oscillator of a compact laser facility designed for investigating the opportunities and methods of in-lab simulation of the radiation and hydrodynamic effects, which occur during Supernova shell dispersion. The oscillator is designed as a neodymium glass laser in the self-mode-locking regime. In order to provide mode locking, it is used a thin layer of the phototropic dye solution 3274γ. Selection from the oscillation train of single laser pulse is performed by the electro-optic Pockels cell with the DKDP crystal and multi-layer dielectric polarizer. The cavity dumping system is controlled by the electronic units. The duration of a single pulse at the oscillator output does not surpass 500 ps, while its energy reaches 1.5 mJ.
