Gain-dependent dispersion in a XeF laser. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • In high-power rare-gas halide lasers the effects of gain-dependent optical dispersion may be sufficiently large to affect output-beam quality. We used a semiclassical approach to study this problem. The results for the case of a XeF laser are presented.
