Paper Abstract

A pulse-shaping system has been implemented on the OMEGA laser system. The system consists of a cw-mode-locked laser that seeds two regenerative amplifiers. In one regenerative amplifier the pulse width is stretched in time with an intracavity etalon. The other regenerative amplifier is used to trigger a photoconductivity switched Pockels cell, which shapes the stretched pulse.
