Alternating-Z tripler with high dynamic range

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A KD*P alternating-Z tripler suitable for NIF consists of two detuned Type I doublers and one aligned Type II mixer. The dynamic range for efficient tripling is predicted to be larger for this arrangement than for a standard 2-crystal tripler. We tested an alternating-Z tripler that had doublers with thicknesses of 13 and 10 mm, and a 10-mm-thick mixer. All of the crystals were 80% deuterated. The model of this tripler provided an excellent description of the efficiencies that were measured using pulses with duration of 1 or 6 ns. We confirmed the importance for alternating-Z triplers of controlling the ... continued below

Description

A KD*P alternating-Z tripler suitable for NIF consists of two detuned Type I doublers and one aligned Type II mixer. The dynamic range for efficient tripling is predicted to be larger for this arrangement than for a standard 2-crystal tripler. We tested an alternating-Z tripler that had doublers with thicknesses of 13 and 10 mm, and a 10-mm-thick mixer. All of the crystals were 80% deuterated. The model of this tripler provided an excellent description of the efficiencies that were measured using pulses with duration of 1 or 6 ns. We confirmed the importance for alternating-Z triplers of controlling the phase differences arising from wavelength dispersion in the air gap between the doublers. The confirmed wide dynamic range of this arrangement is of interest for conversion of the 21-ns Haan pulse, or for conversion of beams with significant intensity fluctuations. Compensation for wavelength dispersion in the gap between the crystals is not an issue if the crystals are in vacuum.
