Paper Abstract

The optical pulse-shaping system for the 60-beam 30-kJ (UV) OMEGA fusion laser is capable of producing complex temporally shaped optical pulses for amplification and delivery to fusion targets. The pulse-shaping system consists of optical modulators driven by an optically activated electrical waveform generator. The electrical waveform generator consists of Si photoconductive switches, and variable impedance microstrip lines. Complex optical pulse shapes with 50 to 100 ps structure have been produced.
