Paper Abstract

Laser pulses with intensities ranging from 109-1011 watts/cm? are routinely used at Livermore to measure nonlinear properties of optical materials. The energy in each of these pulses is measured with an absorbing glass calorimeter. Both vidicon cameras and photographic emulsions are used to record the fluence distribution in laser beams. Pulse waveforms are recorded by a streak camera, or by a combination of a photodiode and an oscilloscope. This paper describes our procedures for using this data to determine the fluence and intensity for short duration laser pulses.
