Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate the efficiency of a single-shot method to measure the beam breakup integral ( B ) accumulated across a high power chain. The technique uses spectrally shaped strongly chirped femtosecond pulses and takes advantage of time-to-spectral coupling generated by nonlinear effects. We performed B measurements on regenerative amplifiers ( Ti : sapphire ) and on the ALISE 200 J facility currently installed at CEA-CESTA (France).
