Abstract

The burst duration of an all-diode-pumped burst-mode laser is extended to 100 ms and 100 kHz (10,000 pulses) by utilizing dual-wavelength diode pumping. Total energies of 225 J at 10 kHz and 400 J at 100 kHz are achieved during the 100 ms burst period at 1064 nm. This represents an order-of-magnitude increase in the number of pulses compared with prior work, while maintaining similar or higher pulse energies. Amplitude tailoring of each pulse is used to flatten the burst profile, reducing the standard deviation in pulse energy over the 100 ms burst from 3.7% to 2.1% with a burst-to-burst standard deviation of 0.8%.
