Pulsed high-pressure mercury capillary lamps: A new way of pumping dye lasers
- 24 Downloads
A high pressure Hg capillary lamp (PEK AH 6-2-B) has been successfully pulsed to produce laser action in a methanol solution of Rhodamine 6 G. This lamp may provide a better laser efficiency than that available with a xenon flashtube.

- 1.For a given laser material (with only one pump band) one can define a lamp's spectral efficiency as Φ=∫σ(λ)I λ dλ/σ p∫I λ dλ, where σ(λ) is the absorption cross section of the material,σ p is its peak value, andI λ is the lamp's spectral intensityGoogle Scholar
