Abstract

Optical amplification of 11 orders of magnitude in a microlens-collimated, diode-laser-pumped regenerative amplifier has been demonstrated. The amplifier was seeded with 20-ps pulses from an FM mode-locked oscillator and with 0.9-ns pulses from a modulated diode laser. Seed pulses from both sources were amplified to energies exceeding 2.5 mJ. With the thermoelectric coolers and the Pockels cell electronics neglected, the diode-seeded system exhibited an electrical-to-optical efficiency of 2.2%.
