Abstract
Conception of a high-power pulsed reactor-pumped laser system (RPLS) based on new physical principles (direct nuclear-to- optical energy conversion) for the technology and space application is discussed. The development of an energy model of RPLS consisting of the ignition two-core fast-burst reactor reactor module and a thermal subcritical laser module filled with an Ar-Xe laser active medium is reported. Some of the experimental results are also presented.
