Abstract : The patent concerns a laser system for producing short optical pulses with higher energy and controllable shape from a high power solid state laser system. The system includes two gratings at the output with an adjustable interferometer between the laser source and an amplifier element. Thus, the output pulse may be tailored to a particular shape.
