Abstract

A frequency matching Brillouin amplification in high-power solid-state laser systems is proposed. The energy extraction efficiency could be maintained at a high level in a non-collinear Brillouin amplification structure using an exact Stokes frequency shift. Laser pulses having a width of 200 ps and energy of 2.4 J were produced. This method can be used to transfer energy from a long pulse to a short pulse through a high-power solid-state laser system.
