Investigations of iodine amplifiers with an aperture of 20...200 cm are presented. It is shown that at the aperture of 200 cm and active length of La equals 720 cm it is possible to extract Ep approximately equals 40 kJ in a monopulse from the amplifier. The results of work can be used at laser fusion facilities for the energy of Ep approximately equals 106 J.
