Disk lasers: Path to compact modular designs for high performance (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): John Vetrovec

Paper Abstract

Disk laser offers excellent scalability over a broad variety of average powers and pulse energies simply by changing the disk size and/or the number of disks in an amplifier. This makes the disk laser a leading candidate for applications ranging from industrial devices for material processing to drivers for laser acceleration of nuclear particles and inertial confinement fusion. This paper highlights key milestones in the evolution of disk lasers and it reports on recent developments of innovative designs offering high performance in compact and modular packaging.
