Abstract:

CERTAIN APPLICATIONS IN COASTAL HYDROGRAPHY REQUIRE A SHORT PULSE WIDTH, HIGH REPETITION RATE OUTPUT FORMAT IN THE GREEN SPECTRAL REGION. A DESIGN FOR A SOLID-STATE LASER IS DESCRIBED WHICH WILL GENERATE 5 NANOSECOND PULSES AT AN ENERGY OF 0.5 MJ PER PULSE AND A REPETITION RATE OF 10KHZ. THE OUTPUT WAVELENGTH WILL BE 532 NM. THE ONLY SYSTEM WHICH CURRENTLY CAN GENERATE VERY SHORT PULSES AT THE 10KHZ PULSE REPETITION RATE IS THE CO-VAPOR LASER OPERATED IN THE PULSE TRANSMISSION MODE. COMPARED TO THE LATTER SYSTEM THE PROPOSED LASER WILL BE AN ORDER OF MAGNITUDE MORE EFFICIENT AND SUBSTANTIALLY SMALLER IN SIZE AND WEIGHT.
