Abstract:

The results of experimental studies of the influence of pumping conditions on the spectral and temporal characteristics of IR Ar I laser radiation upon excitation of the active medium by a pulsed inductive longitudinal discharge are presented. The lasing was obtained at transitions of neutral argon atoms at wavelengths of 1213, 1240, 1270, 1694, and 1791 nm in pure argon and its mixtures with helium and neon. The optical pulses length was (5 ± 1) ns (FWHM); the radiation energy attained 0.1 mJ.

Keywords:

pulsed longitudinal inductive discharge, IR Ar I laser, generation spectrum, pulse duration
