Abstract

A laser pulse temporal compression technique combining stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) and laser-induced breakdown (LIB) is proposed in which the leading edge of the laser pulse is compressed using SBS, and the low intensity trailing edge of the laser pulse is truncated by LIB. The feasibility of the proposed scheme is demonstrated by experiments in which a pulse duration of 8 ns is compressed to 170 ps. Higher compression ratios and higher efficiency are expected under optimal experimental conditions.
