Abstract

We developed gigawatt laser system on diode-pumped Nd:Cr:YAG microchip sub-nanosecond laser and lamp pumped Nd:YAG multistage amplifier. Pulse energy up to 1 J with pulse duration of 0.7 ns at the wavelength of 1064 nm was achieved with very good beam quality. We demonstrated good agreement of computer simulation and experimental data.
