Design and optimization of the seed pulse generation scheme for precise beam synchronization in the Xingguang-III laser.

Abstract

Xingguang-III is a large hybrid optical parametric amplification/chirped pulse amplification laser that outputs synchronized femtosecond, picosecond, and nanosecond beams with three different wavelengths, i.e., 800, 1053, and 527 nm, respectively. We present here an in-house front-end system design that generates the 1053 nm seed laser for the ps/ns beam directly from the 800 nm femtosecond laser, which enables the three beams to have intrinsic synchronization. The results show that a seed laser of 140 μJ energy and 1053 nm central wavelength with 34 nm spectral width (FWHM) is generated and the shot-to-shot timing jitter (peak-to-valley) between the fs and the ps beam is less than 1.32 ps.
