Abstract

The possibility of using liquid nitrogen and liquid oxygen as active media in high-power Raman lasers [lasers using induced combination (Raman) scattering] is established. Some results from a study of nonlinear light losses which cause a reduction in the transparency of liquid nitrogen and liquid oxygen are presented. Ways of reducing the nonlinear losses are discussed, including filtration systems, overpressures, etc. Cryogenic cuvettes for liquid N2 and O2 are described in which the active media have high optical homogeneity over lengths of up to 1 m. Systems for ensuring high spatial uniformity of pump light over the length of the active medium are discussed, specifically a focusing prism screen combined with a light guide of square cross section. Various practical schemes for pulsed Raman lasers are presented.
