    Laser operation of the5S2→5I7transition in 2 percent Ho:YLF at room temperature is reported. Oscillations atlambda = 750nm were obtained in flashlamp and dye laser pumped experiments. Thresholds of 4 J/cm and3 times 10^{-4}J/cm were observed in flashlamp and laser pumped operation, respectively. The 750-nm transition in the Ho... View full abstract»

    a new type of optical oscillator, involving coupled waveguide lasers (CWL's) consisting ofNidentical single-mode active waveguides (N = 3,5) coupled with each other is proposed. Oscillation conditions of coupled waveguide lasers, such as threshold and effective length of waveguides, and output powers are examined theoretically, as compared with the conventional single-mode wa...

    The pump intensity required to achieve operation of an optical parametric oscillator based upon a resonantly enhanced four-wave mixing process is examined. The effects of a finite phase mismatch and of absorption of the generated waves are treated. Numerical calculations for an atomic system (Na) and two molecular systems (HCl, CO) reveal acceptably low pump intensity requirements and suggest that... View full abstract»

    A detailed analytical investigation is presented of a nonlinear device termed the optical Kerr effect modulator (OKEM) which is used to passivelyQswitch and mode lock high-power lasers. Experimentally, an OKEM employing two standard quarter-wave plates is used to passively mode lock the Nd:glass laser. The mode-locking threshold dependence upon the parameters of the OKEM transmission fu... View full abstract»

    Measurements are reported on the photoabsorption cross sections and photoionization yields of N,N-dimethylaniline, triethylamine, trimethylamine, and tri-n-propylamine over the wavelength region from 116 nm to near the respective ionization thresholds. The usefulness of these organic compounds for UV-preionized lasers is evaluated. The characteristics of nitric oxide as a seedant are compared with... View full abstract»

    This paper presents an analysis of the frequency response of single-mode laser frequency modulation. The method employed is based on the combined concepts of an active Fabry-Perot interferometer and of internal phase modulation, and is very transparent. The calculation of the sideband amplitudes and phases of the laser output reveals two main regions of the frequency response: for modulating frequ... View full abstract»

  • Quantitative effect of initial current rise on pumping the double-pulsed copper chloride laser

    The laser energy output of a double-pulsed copper chloride laser has been found to be a logarithmic function of the circuit inductance over the range of 1 to 12 μH. The initial current rise was inversely proportional to the circuit inductance so that the laser energy was also a logarithmic function of the initial current rise. View full abstract»
