Paper Abstract

Two large Nd-Glass lasers (C6 - P102) and a CO2 laser (M3) are currently in operation for target irradiation at the "Centre d'Etudes de Limeil". The C6 laser is a 4_arm system delivering 1 kilojoule of focusable energy in 3 nanoseconds for compression experiments. More recently, P102, a new one-beam laser, has produced 50 ps pulses in the terawatt range for interaction experiments; this laser is also our basic test bed for new laser components (soft aperture, spatial filter, disk amplifier, active mirror amplifier..). M3 is a CO2 TEA laser with 7 cm aperture final amplifier. It is capable of delivering nearly 10 joules in 1 ns for interaction experiments at 10.6 μm.
