    Laser Drivers on the OMEGA Laser

    At its front end, the OMEGA 60-beam UV laser has three independent laser drivers. Each of these systems produces shaped seed pulses and delivers them to the stage A amplifiers.

    3D View of PGR Optical Tables

    A three-dimensional view of the PGR optical tables containing the main, SSD, and backlighter diode-pumped regenerators, the SSD modulators, and the periscope that delivers the beams to the driver-line area in the Laser Bay. The tables also contain diagnostic equipment and various optics used to point, center and collimate the beams. The 2-D SSD modulator is located inside the x-band box.

    LARA used in the OMEGA laser driver

    The LARA used in the OMEGA laser driver. The Pockels cell admits the input pulse and then, after four round trips, switches the amplified pulse out. The four-lens spatial filter is used in defining the alignment axis.
