Abstract
A two-cell stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) pulse compressor design is presented that can be scaled to large laser pulse energies and a numerical model has been developed which accurately predicts the performance of this pulse compressor system over a wide range of operating parameters. The compression of a 2.5 J input pulse from a width of 15.8 ns to 1.7 ns is demonstrated with 80% energy efficiency.
