    Characteristics of a gas laser amplifier are theoretically analyzed by employing Lamb's model. A wave equation in the time domain is obtained when traveling waves in the positive and negative directions are present simultaneously in the nonlinear active medium. The wave equation which contains linear and third-order nonlinear terms is applicable to any spectral construction of the incident signal,... View full abstract»

    A push-pull optical amplitude modulator is described, and some experimental results are presented. The modulator is an interferometer with phase modulators in each arm. The design gives good temperature stability and allows a reduced modulating voltage by using a transverse modulating field. The use of a Köster's beamsplitting prism provided a compact practical design for the experimental KDP... View full abstract»

  • A proposal for internal electrooptic intensity and frequency modulation of diode lasers

    Modulation of a GaAs diode laser by a GaP electro-optic diode modulator internal to the laser cavity is proposed. Application of a reverse voltage to the modulator diode changes the state of polarization of the oscillating mode. One polarization component of the mode is efficiently coupled out of the cavity by reflection off a Brewster angle laser diode face. Solutions of the threshold equations f... View full abstract»

  • Stark effect produced frequency shifts in the helium-neon laser

    Charged-particle diffusion theory of the positive column of a gas discharge predicts the establishment of a radial electric field, which by the second-order Stark effect produces a shift of the atomic line center in a single-frequency helium-neon laser. These frequency shifts are estimated with a simple theory. The results are: i) the atomic line center is a function of radial position in the disc... View full abstract»

  • Stimulated Raman scattering in quartz

    Stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) from infrared-active phonons in quartz is discussed. The scattering is concluded to be from a different region ofkspace than that previously stated in the literature. The possibility of producing a broadly tunable parametric oscillator via SRS in quartz is viewed with pessimism. View full abstract»

    An upper limit of between 25 and 35 ps has been determined for the relaxation time of the Eastman 9740 bleachable-dyeQ-switch solution. The measurement was made by determining the time dependence of the transmission of the dye cell inside a mode-locked Nd:glass laser, using a delayed, attenuated pulse from the same laser as a probe.

  • Linear electrooptic effect in HgS (Cinnabar) at 0.63 and 3.39 microns

    Nonlinear optical properties of HgS have been of interest lately. The electrooptic effect has been measured in a natural crystal and values for the two independent coefficients are reported here at wavelengths of 0.63 and 3.39 microns. The results agree well with predictions of purely electronic theories, but the wavelength dependence indicates an appreciable contribution of ionic motion to the op... View full abstract»

  • Calculations of intrinsic threshold for TE and TM mode in GaAs laser diodes

    The theoretical calculations presented are similar to those of other authors. The intrinsic threshold of laser diodes is computed on the basis of an electromagnetic propagation calculation. The diode properties are approximated by a sandwich structure for dielectric constant and conductivity. This model differs from the earlier ones by assuming a triangular distribution of dielectric constant and ... View full abstract»

    The theory of an optical maser in the presence of an external static magnetic field has been discussed recently by several authors. It is shown here that a considerable simplification of the theory results when one uses a tensor operator expansion of the density matrix describing the system. View full abstract»
