Paper Abstract

The Nd:Glass laser is used extensively throughout the world for laser fusion and laser plasma interaction studies. Its popularity, to a large extent, stems from the fact that it is capable of operating reliably in the subnanosecond-terawatt power regime. In addition, the technology necessary to combine a large number of laser chains to produce a system capable of multi-terawatt performance currently exists and is being applied.
