Abstract:

The work for this research contract on atmospheric-pressure gas lasers had as its main objectives the generation of short laser pulses through mode locking and cavity dumping, the study of the nonlinear amplification processes in a transversely excited atmospheric pressure laser, and development of computer programs to check the observed amplifier responses against models of the relaxation processes of the CO2 molecule in a laser discharge.
