7 March 2014 Analysis of divided-pulse amplification for high-energy extraction
Author Affiliations +
Divided-pulse amplification employing passive coherent beam combining implementations causes a strong degradation in efficiency. In this contribution typical implementations are analyzed and a solution using an active stabilization system is presented. With this 380 fs pulses at 1.25 mJ corresponding to a peak power of 2.9 GW have been achieved demonstrating the potential of this approach.
