Abstract
The under-construction SG-III laser facility is a huge high power solid laser driver, which contains 48 beams and is designed to deliver 180kJ energy at 3ns pulse duration. The testing ending up at September 2012 validated that the first bundle lasers of SG-III facility had achieved all the designed requirements. And shortly later in December 2012, the first round of running-in physics experiment provided a preliminary X-ray diagnostic result. In the testing experiment, detailed analysis of the laser energy, the temporal characteristics, the spatial distribution and the focusing performance was made by using the Beam Integrated Diagnostic System. The 25kJ 3ω energy produced by the first bundle lasers created the new domestic record in China. These great progresses in the laser performance and the physics experiment have already demonstrated that the facility is in excellent accordance with the designs, which establish a solid foundation for completing all the construction goals.
