Abstract

Terawatt hybrid laser (THL-100) system on the basis of Ti:sapphire starting complex and final amplifier with gaseous optically driven active media on XeF(C-A) molecules is presented. Laser system is built at Institute of High Current Electronics SB RAS, Tomsk, Russia. It consists of Ti:sapphire starting complex and photochemical XeF(C-A) amplifier. The active media of amplifier pumped by VUV radiation has 24 cm aperture and 110 cm length. The results of numerical modeling of the output parameters and first experimental results are presented in this paper.
