Study of the Q-switching regimes of the loop cavity of a Nd:YAG laser using an external plasma mirror

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


This paper discusses the self-modulation regimes of a multiloop cavity with external optical action initiated by the reflection of the laser beam’s focused radiation from the laser target plasma created by it. The self-modulation regime does not have a distinct threshold character. It is found that an intense Q-switching regime is characterized by the presence of a mode-locking regime. It is demonstrated that the self-Q-switching regime of a loop cavity can be used to automatically identify substances by the method of laser-spark emission spectroscopy.
