Abstract

An analysis of the dynamic characteristics of parasitic oscillation between target and pinhole of a beam expander was carried out using a simplified rate equation model. Suppression of parasitic oscillation was also investigated in view of the oscillation dynamics. Useful results were obtained quantitatively concerning the rise time of the amplifier gain and the distance between the target and the final amplifier of the laser fusion system.
