Paper Abstract

Under contract to the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory, we have designed and fabricated a new aberration generator for use in a 1-gigawatt, 4-cm-diameter, 1.06-μm laser beam. Four glass lenses, one of which is aspheric, form a unit-magnification, nonachromatic telescope. The elements are shaped and oriented to resist laser damage. Through selected tilt, translation, and decentration of the elements, up to three waves of fourth order and more than 10 waves of second order aberrations can be generated separately or in combination.
