To eliminate the issues and practical limitations associated with a stripper foil used in a proton accelerator for the charge-exchange injection of H$$^{-}$$ beam, we are preparing for a POP (proof-of-principle) demonstration of foil-less H$$^{-}$$ charge-exchange injection by using only lasers at J-PARC. A prototype YAG laser system has been developed and keep continuing its upgrade through experimental studies of 3 MeV H$$^{-}$$ neutralization. To sufficiently reduce the seed laser energy, we have also developed a multi-reflection laser cavity system, which has as many as 32 reflections overlapped at the interaction point of the ion beam. In 2022, we have obtained nearly 20% flat neutralization for over 40 $$mu$$s of the ion beam. In addition, the spot neutralization (estimated from the fraction overlap with the ion beam due to a tiny laser spot) was obtained to be nearly 100%. This implies the significant merit of the cavity to reduce the seed laser power. The POP demonstration of 400 MeV H$$^{-}$$ stripping will be started in 2023.
