Paper Abstract

A laser system that produces terawatt-level pulses of 308-nm light with near-diffraction-limited beam quality is under development. Pulses of 175-fs duration are generated at 616 nm in a synchronously-pumped mode-locked dye oscillator. These pulses are amplified in a three-stage dye amplifier longitudinally pumped by the frequency-doubled output of a regenerative Nd:YAG amplifier. Output of the dye amplifier is frequency-doubled in a BBO crystal and amplified in a chain of XeC1 excimer stages. The optical design maintains high beam quality throughout the system.
