Abstract:

The pulsed phosphorus vapor laser has been investigated in detail. A number of laser plasma tubes have been constructed and this performance has been evaluated. The normal output parameters of peak power, gain, and beam quality have been determined for the visible orange ion laser lines at 6024 A and 6043 A. The effects of the tube geometry and excitation pulse power as well as carrier gas type and pressure have been investigated. In addition, a number of new laser lines occurring in the infrared were discovered. Transition assignments for these lines were made, and the characteristics of the laser output were determined.
