Abstract

The generation of laser pulses with energies of >40 mJ at 25 Hz and durations variable from 15 ps to 45 ps using an Nd:yttrium aluminum garnet laser mode-locked with a Stankov nonlinear mirror is demonstrated. This laser is used to pump an optical parametric generator-amplifier, which is tunable in the visible spectral range.
