Abstract:

Beam divergence at 10 db from extinction was measured, and far-field patterns photographed for 37 ruby rods of different quality. The growth with pumping power of the most intense portion of the laser beam was measured for two rods of very different quality. An autocollimator reticle image was photographed after passage through each rod. Correlation of beam divergence with optical parameters is discussed. Author
