    The simultaneous action of a RF perturbation between the Zeeman sublevels of an atomic transition, which is also sustaining laser oscillations, is given further consideration. General equations are derived that describe the phenomena in a rotating effective magnetic field basis. These are valid for any level of the RF perturbation, being then solved by iteration to third order in the laser electri... View full abstract»

    The minimum obtainable pulse duration for a mode-locked ruby laser is the reciprocal linewidth, which amounts to approximately 2 ps. The present correspondence describes a system achieving this limit. View full abstract»

    In this paper laser resonator interferometry for submillimeter-wave lasers is discussed. In particular, the application of laser resonator interferometry to the study of various aspects of laser emission is shown. The basis of this interferometry is an understanding of the resonator mode structure, which is derived from a theory of resonators with low Fresnel numbers and dielectric enclosure. The ...

    The efficiency of a YAG: Nd3+-laser and the influence of pump-power level and of spectral filtering the pump light was studied. The laser was pulsed high above threshold. Without filtering the pump light, the maximum laser emission was reached 30 μs before the maximum pump power. With filtered pump light, the efficiency is doubled and the laser emission roughly follows the pump pow... View full abstract»

    Measurements were made of the nonlinear interaction in a saturable absorber between two traveling waves of different planes of polarization. The experimental results indicate that the theory proposed by Dienes, which includes level degeneracies, correctly describes the nonlinear interaction. View full abstract»

    Isotope shifts in Cd112, Cd114, and Cd116have been measured using enriched isotopes in a cadmium laser. Preparatory measurements using natural cadmium showed an anomalous change from a double-peaked spectral profile to a single-peaked profile when the active tube length was doubled.

    The wide power dispersion and high effective temperature of radiation call forth the useful application of lasers for the investigation of high-temperature and gas dynamical processes as well as in plasma physics. By means of lasers, it is possible to investigate the phase transition in any substance, determine the thermophysical parameters, and study the phase transition kinetics in the wide inte...

    Two-photon fluorescence traces used for picosecond pulse-width measurement are analyzed and described by intensity correlation functions, also known as second-order coherence functions. The correlation functions and the fluorescence traces are discussed for three special types of light emission and calculated in detail for a three-mode laser model in free-running, mode-locking, and FM-like operati...
