    The theory of an optical pulse generator, consisting of a solid-state laser with a saturable absorber at one end of the cavity, is considered in some detail. Equations are obtained using third-order perturbation theory for the nonlinear medium and Maxwell's equations for the cavity which describe the behavior of the absorber in bringing the modes into phase alignment. Using simplifying assumptions... View full abstract»

    Considerable power broadening of Ne 2p_{4} saturation peaks in a 0.63-μ He-Ne laser is observed by tuned laser differential spectrometry. The results are in agreement with calculations that properly distinguish broadening and quenching collisions. View full abstract»

  • Optimum coupling for intracavity second harmonic generation

    The optimum coupling for intracavity second harmonic generation has been theoretically studied. It has been shown that, both for a four- and three-level laser, one can get as much power at the second harmonic wavelength as that which can be obtained at the laser wavelength. It is also shown that, for both cases, an optimum value for lw/w_{0} exists, where View full abstract»

    In this paper some of the experimental considerations for obtaining phonon attenuation in solids by Brillouin scattering are described. Measurements of room temperature damping of longitudinal hypersonic waves in α-quartz, fused silica, and calcium fluoride are reported. The observed phonon frequency and linewidth for backward scattering of 6328-Å light in these solids is typically ͬ... View full abstract»

  • Up-conversion of 10.6 µ radiation to the visible and second harmonic generation in HgS

    The frequency mixing of infrared signals with visible laser light in nonlinear crystals (here referred to as up-conversion) has been suggested as a possible means of detecting infrared signals by use of sensitive and fast visible wavelength detectors. Preliminary experiments are reported of the up-conversion of the CW 10.6 μ CO2laser by phase-matched difference mixing in HgS with t... View full abstract»

  • Steady-state electromagnetic shock in Kerr liquid

    Publication Year: 1968 , Page(s): 519 - 522

    Solutions are obtained for a steady-state electromagnetic shock in a nonlinear Kerr liquid. The equations for the liquid are those of De Martini et al. [1]. It is found that a shock solution can always be found regardless of the magnitude of the nonlinear parameter relating the change of propagation velocity to the energy density. Every shock is described completely, for a given material, in terms... View full abstract»
