Abstract
The requirements for the production of high power, subplcosecond laser pulses are reviewed. Use of the chirped-pulse amplification technique makes solid-state materials competitive with dyes and excimers for the production of subplcosecond pulses. In cases where both high power and short pulses are required, solid-state materials are shown to be the material of choice. As an example, the design and performance of a 3.2 Terawatt Nd:Glass laser system based on chirped-pulse amplification is presented.
