Abstract

The results from the generation and amplification of positively chirped pulses of 0.05 ns duration at a central wavelength of 475 nm in a THL-100 laser system are presented. It is found that the initial complex allows the generation of such radiation pulses with Gaussian intensity profiles and energies of up to 7 mJ. When such pulses with energies of 2–4 mJ are amplified in an XeF(C-A) amplifier, it is possible to achieve a saturation mode and obtain at the output laser beams with energies of up to 3.2 J. The possibility of compressing subnanosecond pulses at a wavelength of 475 nm in a compressor based on diffraction gratings is demonstrated.
