Analysis of lasers with linearly switched losses

  • 10 Accesses


An analytical technique is suggested for calculating the radiation of lasers operated in the giant-pulse mode with losses switched off linearly with time. This method makes it possible to calculate the maximum power of giant pulses, their energy, duration, and number. Examples are given of designing lasers using this technique on a digital computer.
