The glow of dense sodium vapor, induced by the absorbed laser radiation, has been analyzed using the methods of computer simulations. The deformation of laser pulse and frequency, angular, and spatial characteristic of a fluorescence response have been studied. Using the decrement of its attenuation, we have obtained the dependence of Biberman–Holstein capture factor on optical thickness of a medium for spherical and cylindrical geometry.
