Paper Abstract

Theoretical beam propagation studies in a high powered laser system are described. The basis of the model is a diffraction propagation code which includes a wide range of non-linear optical effects and optical components. Parameters of interest to the laser designer, such as beam quality at the output of the laser, focussable power through a given lens placed downstream and peak to average intensities in optical components such as turning mirrors are all discussed in the context of the laser layout.
