Abstract:

The creation of a compact emitter for an inductive nitrogen laser (λ = 337.1 nm) with the active medium pumped by a pulsed inductive longitudinal discharge of the transformer type is reported for the first time. In the inductive laser head created, the lasing energy attains 0.35 mJ and the lasing pulse length is (25 ± 5) ns (FWHM) depending on the resonator Q-factor. The use of a semiconfocal cavity provides for a near-Gaussian beam profile.

Keywords:

pulsed, inductive discharge of the transformer type, compact nitrogen laser, high operation stability, Gaussian profile of laser beam
