Abstract

We demonstrate high-energy pulse compression by stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) in water using an energy-scalable generator amplifier setup. Pulse compression from 2.4 J, 12 ns at 532 nm to 1.2 J, 300 ps has been achieved, which to our knowledge represents the highest compressed energy achieved at 532 nm using SBS and is only limited by the size of our optics. Our setup is robust and stable over long periods of operation (2% of energy fluctuation and <3% shot-to-shot variation of pulse width).
