Abstract
An optical scheme for a kJ channel of a neodymium glass laser system with SBS-compressor for a 70 ns pulse has been described. The use of a pump pulse of long duration - 70 ns - makes it possible to operate a near-steady SBS mode in compressed gasses. An experimental study of the SBS oscillator-compressor stage with pump focusing and a two- pass pattern has been carried out and a 70 ns, 8 J pump pulse has been compressed down to 1 ns.
