Abstract
We demonstrate the wave-front correction of the LULI 100TW, 300 fs/30 J high power laser facility for a sequence of shots. Excellent beam focusability close to diffraction limit has been obtained using an adaptive optic system, composed of a large aperture dielectric coated deformable mirror and a home-made shearing interferometer. This correction allows to produce reproducible focal spots with Strehl ratios close to 0.9 at a repetition rate of a shot every 20 minutes, despite of wave front distortions generated by cumulative thermal effects in the large disc amplifiers.
