Project: Pulse modulation of CO2 laser plasmas: diagnostic techniques for the design of high power lasers.

project duration
01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
Two existing CW FAF CO2 lasers will serve as a testbed for the following experiments : 1) time dependent IR absorption spectrometry 2) stability of large diameter discharges using Langmuir probe techniques and comparison with simulations of turbulent electron diffusion 3) comparison of optomechanical and piezoelectric modulators for Q switching.
