THE DYNAMIC PINCH AS A HIGH-INTENSITY LIGHT SOURCE FOR OPTICAL MASER PUMPING

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

>The optical radiation that occurs in a dynamic plasma pinch experiment depends in part on the amount and type of impurity atoms present in the system. By proper choice of these impurities, it should be possible to tailor the optical radiation from the pinch in intensity, spectrum, and duration such that the kinetic energy of motion (1OO to 1OOO joules) appears as radiation enengy in less than 10/sup -6/ sec. This should provide a good method of optical pumping for pulse optical maser operation. The optical radiation from the dynamic pinch is discussed and an experiment that is being set ... continued below

The optical radiation from the dynamic pinch is discussed and an experiment that is being set up to use this radiation as the pump source for an optical maser is described. (auth)
