A flash-lamp-pumped Nd:YAG regenerative amplifier has been developed at 1.06 μm, seeded with 10-ps pulses from a diode-end-pumped and mode-locked Nd:YAG oscillator with homemade semiconductor saturable absorber mirror (SESAM). The pulse energy was amplified to 2 mJ by the regenerative amplifier at 10-Hz repetition rate. In two-stages amplifier the regenerative amplified pulse energy was amplified to 100 mJ, and 35-mJ double frequency at 532 nm was obtained by extra-cavity double frequency with a KTP crystal.
