Abstract
The design and performance of front end system for the upgrade six-channel Nd:glass laser facility PROGRESS are presented. The system consists of a single-mode Q-switch Nd:YLF master oscillator, pulse shaping system and preamplifier. The pulse shaping system comprises a LiTaO3 electro optic deflector pair driven by high-voltage generators on drift step recovery diodes. The system produces the shaped laser pulses in 1-10 nanosecond duration range. In one-pass preamplifier including a sequence of Nd:glass rod amplifiers with output aperture of 30mm the shaped pulses are amplified up to 5 J energy level.
