Abstract:

A rate equation model for an injection locked dye ring laser amplifier is derived. The amplifier is a design by A. Pease et al. The model is compared to work by G. Marowsky, C. Lin, and U. Ganiel et al and is shown to compare very well. The model is then used to analyze the amplifier. The conditions of the amplifier that are varied are the injected wavelength, delay time between the injection and pump pulses, and the mirror reflectivity. Results show that reabsorption of photons at the injected wavelength by the dye has significant effects on looking and that varying the mirror reflectivity partially alleviates this situation. The best delay times are found to be between 3 and 7 ns. Author
