    A simple analysis of the self-focusing of a short pulse shows that the distance at which the focal region first appears exceeds the minimum focusing distance Zfby an amount dependent upon the initial pulsewidth. This focal region subsequently expands as it moves down the medium, the limiting width being the width of the portion of the pulse above the critical power. View full abstract»

    A very high gain amplifier has been developed by arranging for many amplifying passes to be made through one system. Input pulses of millijoule energy have been amplified to the damage limit of the materials (∼10 J/cm2) by this method. One such system can replace several when amplification of low-energy pulses is required. View full abstract»

  • Switching of phase-locked states in the intracavity phase-modulated He-Ne laser

    It is known that there exist two solutions for the He-Ne laser phase locked by synchronous internal phase modulation. One corresponds to a phase difference between adjacent modes of even integers of π (even state) and the other to odd integers of π (odd state). Although their frequency power spectra in general look similar, they appear in the time response as two different sets of pulse ... View full abstract»

  • The CW gain characteristics of several gas mixtures at 337 µ

    An experimental investigation of the CW gain characteristics at 337 μ of several HCN laser systems was carried out. The gain is reported as a function of pressure, current, gas mixture, and flow rate. In addition, the radial distribution was determined and the gain was found to be independent of radius for all mixtures measured. View full abstract»

    Coupled amplitude equations are derived to describe the interaction of three light waves propagating in a nonlinear dielectric waveguide. The coupling coefficients reflect the combined effect of the nonlinear susceptibility and the finite geometry. View full abstract»
