Paper Abstract

This paper shows experimental and theoretical results obtained with an oscillator-amplifier XeCl laser system of short duration (3 ns) and high energy. This laser system is based on a four pass amplification scheme with off-axis incidence to the active medium to minimize the formation of the Amplified Spontaneous Emission in the amplifier. In this configuration, pulses of approximately 10.2 mJ energy and of 3.8 ns duration have been obtained with a high contrast. These results are discussed and compared to numerical ones issued from a numerical code describing the amplification of the oscillator beam in the active medium.
