Abstract

Terawatt hybrid (solid state/gas) laser (THL-100) system on the basis of Ti:sapphire starting complex (50 fs, 5 mJ) and photochemical XeF(C-A) amplifier with the aperture of 24 cm is presented. Laser system is built at Institute of High Current Electronics SD RAS, Tomsk, Russia. The design and peculiarities of optical pumping of XeF(C-A) amplifier, methods of pump power measuring, gain distribution across the active volume are discussed. The results of numerical modeling of the output parameters simulation are presented and one compared with first experimental results.
