This paper describes a solid state laser concept that scales to MW levels of burst power and MJ of burst energy and burst durations measured in seconds. During lasing action, waste heat is purposely stored in the heat capacity of the active medium. The paper outlines the principal scaling laws of key operational features and arrives at a conceptual design example of the laser head as well as a mobile laser system.
