Paper Abstract

A technique for obtaining a pulse-periodic operating mode of high-power wide-aperture lasers (GDL, HF/DF, COIL) was put forward theoretically and experimentally realized for the case of GDL. The possibility of realizing a pulse-periodic mode in high-power wide-aperture lasers without a sacrifice in average output power was experimentally demonstrated and applicability of the realized approach for lightcraft technology further development is pointed out. Regime of light supported detonation wave and effect of shock waves joining for this particular application were investigated.
