Abstract

A prototype solid state picosecond laser is reported for single shot laser-Compton bio-imaging applications. The target specification is 1J, 1ps at 120Hz with good beam quality for precise pointing to 10 μm focused 43MeV electron beam with 1nC charge. 0.1J stretched pulse is obtained from a thin disc Yb:YAG laser, and amplified through a cryogenically cooled Slab Yb: YAG module in a multipass configuration. Temperature dependent gain characteristics is analysed and concluded as the designed optimization is sufficient for long time stable operation for the laser-Compton imaging.
