Paper Abstract

Compact plasma Pockel's cells (PPC) with 70mm aperture driven by one-pulse process have been constructed for technical integration line (TIL) of SGIII laser facility. The experimental results indicate that the working range of gas pressure is wide, and the delay of gas breakdown is steady. Measurements of the optical performance show static transmittance of 93.1%, static extinction ratio of 3900, and average switching efficiency of 99.7%. Eight compact PPCs are used for the second-stage integrating experiments of TIL. By using of parallel driving technology, one driver can work for four PPCs. An analyzer of optical switch is replaced with Brewster-angle Nd-glass slabs in amplifier. Two years application results show that the PPCs can effectively minimize the growth of parasitic-oscillation, and have a high reliability.
