We demonstrated >80 W picosecond output at a pulse repetition frequency of 100 MHz from a dual Nd:YVO(4) amplifier laser system consisting of a phase-conjugate Nd:YVO(4) bounce amplifier combined with a second diode-side-pumped Nd:YVO(4) bounce amplifier. The output exhibited high quality spatial form with M(2) < 1.8 and a pulse duration (FWHM) of 9.2 ps. A peak power of >7.4 MW with an average power of 78.5 W was also achieved at a pulse repetition frequency of 1.0 MHz.
