Abstract

This paper reports on the creation of a THL-100 multi-terawatt hybrid laser system based on a Start-480M titanium-sapphire starting complex and photochemical XeF(C-A) amplifier with a 25-cm aperture. The complex produces 50-fs radiation pulses of energy up to 5 mJ at a second harmonic wavelength of 475Â nm. The active medium of the amplifier is created in a XeF2/N2 mixture under vacuum-ultraviolet radiation of electron beam-excited xenon. The results of first experiments on femtosecond pulse amplification in the active medium of the XeF(C-A) amplifier are presented to demonstrate that a laser beam peak power of 14 TW has been attained.
