High energy high repetition rate diode pumped laser amplifier modules at 1064nm for space applications
Author(s): Laurent Masson; Paul Wazen

Paper Abstract

Quantel has developed, in the frame of ALADIN and ATLID projects, diode pumped amplifier modules for space application. Design, laser and environmental performances will be presented. High energy output of 480mJ at 100Hz, amplification starting with 7mJ input, has been demonstrated at 1064 nm. Laser performances as beam pointing stability, shot to shot energy stability, M2 have been demonstrated. Environmental qualification of this amplifier pump module has been successfully performed.
