Abstract
The construction of CO2 laser system generating a train of subnanosecond laser pulses with total train energy up to 5 J is reported. A record level of laser energy was obtained due to utilization of unique 5 X 5 cm2 aperture, 6 atm X- ray preionized CO2 amplifier. The estimations of individual pulses durations in the train are given. The prospective of upgrading of present configuration of laser system towards shortening of laser pulses duration and increasing the pressure of working gas mixture of the amplifier and its efficiency are discussed.
