Paper Abstract

In the report building and application questions of picosecond terawatt CO2 laser installations are presented. The design and the description of the basic components of middle-infrared picosecond laser facility (MIRPLF) with terawatt power of 10 &mgr;m laser radiation manufacturing by efforts of institutes NIIKIOEP and NIIEFA are presented. The main attention is paid to questions of design of the master oscillator with pulse with 10÷100 ps and the final laser CO2 high pressure amplifier (HPA) with the intermediate water capacitor integrated in to the gas-discharge chamber. The main results of experimental investigations of characteristics of MIRPLF components are presented and prospects of MIRPLF projected peak power increasing are analyzed.
