Models in Laser Technology

Light Amplification in Laser Crystals It is well known that light can be amplified by stimulated emission e.g. in laser crystals. In a laser crystal, additional effects such as gain saturation, gain guidingand diffraction also come into play. But how do all these effects combine in detail? A clear quantitative understanding of such processes is indispensable for the efficient development of laser devices. A model for the amplification of a laser beam in a bulk laser may… Read Article →
