Abstract

The first experimental results obtained in visible range using the THL-100 multi-terawatt hybrid laser system after modernization of the starting femtosecond complex and the gas amplifier are reported. The modernization was performed to increase the output beam power at the expense of changing the configuration of the vacuum diode of the electron accelerator used for pumping of the XeF(C-A) amplifier. As a result, the increase of the VUV radiation pumping energy of the active medium of the XeF(C-A) amplifier by 30% is attained. This leads to doubling of the output laser beam energy of the XeF(C-A) amplifier.
