Pulsed-periodic laser on RM helium and strontium transitions
Conditions of generation of a running excitation wave in the active medium of gas lasers and efficiency of the running wave application for pumping of the active medium are considered by the example of a strontium vapor laser. It is demonstrated that the running excitation wave is generated directly in the active laser medium and is supported by the energy stored in the capacitive component of the impedance of a gas-discharge tube. Generation on the self-limited (21P1-21S0) transition of the helium atom at λ = 2058 nm and simultaneous generation on RM transitions of the strontium ion and strontium and helium atoms and on a number of neon atom transitions is first excited.
