The work covered in this report is separated into three tasks. Task I describes the way high efficiency continuous pumping of NdYAG has been achieved through the use of spectral additive lamps. Task II describes the development of a long life xenon flash lamp suitable for pumping NdYAG at high repetition rates. Task III describes the development of theoretical techniques for determining the spectra from lamps so that in conjunction with a known absorption spectrum from a laser material, the most efficient pump can be predicted.
