This book explores new principles of Self-Initiating-Volume Discharge for creating high-energy non-chain HF(DF) lasers, as well as the creation of highly efficient lasers with output energy and radiation power in the spectral region of 2.6-5 μm. Today, sources of high-power lasing in this spectral region are in demand in various fields of science and technology including remote sensing of the atmosphere, medicine, biological imaging and precision machining and other special applications. These applications require efficient laser sources with high pulse energy, pulsed and average power making the development of physical fundamentals of high-power laser creation and laser complexes of crucial importance.

High Energy Ecologically Safe HF/DF Lasers: Physics of Self Initiated Volume Discharge based HF/DF Lasers examines the conditions of formation of SSVD, gas composition and the mode of energy input into the gas on the efficiency and radiation energy of non-chain HF(DF) lasers.

Key Features:

  • Shares research results on SSVD in mixtures of non-chain HF(DF)
  • Studies the stability and dynamics of the development of SSVD
  • Discusses the effect of the gas composition and geometry of the discharge gap (DG) on its characteristics.
  • Proposes recommendations for gas composition and for the method of obtaining SSVD in non-chain HF(DF) lasers.
  • Develops simple and reliable wide-aperture non-chain HF(DF) lasers and investigates their characteristics.
  • Investigates the possibilities of expanding the lasing spectrum of the non-chain HF(DF) lasers
