Conference paper


The line-narrowing and line-rebroadening of the Amplified Spontaneous Emission (ASE) in the high-gain He-Ne 3.39 pm laser amplifier and statistics of intensity fluctuations of the ASE were studied with emphasis on the transition region from the linear amplification to saturation.
