Abstract

A 30-TWW 1.0-ps laser pulse at 1053 nm has been generated by chirped-pulse amplification in a large-aperture Nd:phosphate glass laser system. A peak-to-prepulse intensity ratio of better than 107 was obtained by temporal windowing of a self-phase-modulated chirped pulse before amplification and compression.
