Paper Abstract

A laser system that produces intense subpicosecond pulses of 248 nm light is under development. Ultrashort pulses are generated in the visible in a synchronously-pumped mode-locked dye oscillator, heterodyned into the uv by two KDP crystals, and amplified in a chain of KrF* amplifiers. Front end output of 5 pJ is amplified to 20 mJ and focused to peak intensities of order 1017 W cm-2. Additanal amplification is expected to permit experiments at intensities >1020 W cm-2.
