Abstract

A diode-pumped injection-seeded Nd:YAG laser system with an average output power of 38 W is described. The laser operates at 300 Hz with pulse energies up to 130 mJ . The temporal pulse shape is nominally flat in time and the pulse width is user selectable from 350 to 600 ps . In addition, the spatial profile of the beam is near top hat with contrast < 10% .
