Abstract

We demonstrate stimulated Brillouin scattering compression of diode-pumped Nd:YAG laser pulses with a 3-ns duration into 350-ps pulses at a pulse-repetition rate of 100  Hz for what is believed to be the first time. The output pulse energy was 6.5  mJ, with a beam-quality factor M2 of 1.15, and after final amplification the energy reached 36  mJ, with M2 of 2.5.
