Paper Abstract

After a brief overview of slab geometry work published to date we report on the zig-zag optical path slab laser work at Spectra Technology by describing a 100 Hz slab YAG system (CENTURION) and a 10 Hz dual slab glass system (GEMINI). We will also describe some of the major diagnostic work performed and in the process illustrate the major mechanisms responsible for beam distortion observed in these types of slab lasers.
