Abstract
The Asterix IV high power iodine laser is designed to deliver in a single beam output pulses with lengths ranges from 0.1 to 4 ns with a maximum power of 5 TW and an energy of up to 2 kJ. This laser has now achieved its projected output energy of 2.0 kJ and an output power of 4 TW. The Asterix laser has been developed on the basis of 10 years of experience with the 1 TW Asterix III laser and with the support of a 1D and a 3D pulse propagation code. Special emphasis has been put on obtaining an optimal overall efficiency of the laser system and a laser beam intensity profile as homogeneous as possible.
