    Power output and beam noise parametric results are obtained for the blue transition of the self-heated He-Cd laser in tubes of 0.10-0.16-cm bore diameter. Presentation of this data in the form of performance contour maps shows that the usual scaling laws for laser discharges are accurate for this laser (<12-percent parameter variation for a 60-percent diameter variation) and is a convenient for...

    Grating-coupled radiation in lasers and waveguides is analyzed for trapezoidal-shaped grating teeth which includes all triangular shapes. A perturbation technique is used which involves calculating the modes in a geometry with an inhomogeneous refractive index profile in the grating region. Curves are presented for radiated power from traveling waves as a function of blazing angle, grating tooth h... View full abstract»

    The data and results of an extended investigation of the more salient parameters associated with the application of ultraviolet (UV) photoionization processes in TEA CO2lasers are presented. The study encompasses emission spectra, wavelength dependence, and influence of circuit parameters for a typical UV spark source. This investigation and a companion study utilizing a specialized cha... View full abstract»

    A numerical analysis of rotational nonequilibrium effects in CW DF chemical lasers is presented. The rotational master equations incorporate the effects of simultaneous mixing, chemical pumping, rotational cross relaxation, and radiative emission. Rotational cross relaxation is described by "exponential gap" models in which ΔJ is unrestricted. Results of this analysis indicate that rotational... View full abstract»

    The effect of temperature gradients from absorption of the pump energy in jet-stream dye lasers is investigated photographically. The pictures show definite crescent-shaped patterns (representing serious astigmatism) for the lower jet-stream velocities, and some interferences even at the highest velocities. The sources of heating are discussed and the results coordinated with theoretical predictio... View full abstract»

    Properties of the output prism coupler and the dielectric bends are investigated near cutoff. A decrease in the attenuation very close to cutoff is exhibited by the prism coupler and might be possible also in the bend case. Range of validity of the established approximated solutions is discussed. View full abstract»

    Intensity-dependent changes in the refractive index of three low-index Nd phosphate laser glasses (LHG-5, LHG-6, EV-1) and one Nd fluorophosphate laser glass were measured at 1064 nm using time-resolved interferometry. The nonlinear refractive index coefficients of these phosphate glasses are all smaller than for Nd silicate laser glass (ED-2). View full abstract»

    The field configurations and propagation constants of linearly polarized low-loss modes in hollow dielectric waveguides with rectangular cross section are computed analytically under the assumption that the dimensions of the rectangular cross section are much larger than the free-space wavelength. The attenuation constant is then equal to the sum of the corresponding TE- and TM-mode attenuation co... View full abstract»

    A method is presented for measurement of the relaxation time of a passive Q -switch dye in the picosecond region which is based on the determination of the Q -switch threshold. The relaxation times of 24 ± 5 ps for cryptocyanine and 28 ± 5 ps for modified dicarbocyanine iodide were obtained. View full abstract»

    A pulsed, coherent, spin-flip Raman experiment is proposed. Calculations show that if narrow pulses are used to drive the spin system in InSb via the Raman coupling, the equivalent of an NMR \pi/2 -pulse experiment may be achieved. The free induction decay signal is expected to be about 10-6J/pulse and might serve as an intense, pulsed, magneticall... View full abstract»
