Part of the The Lebedev Physics Institute Series book series (LPIS)


Two problems must be solved to create the active medium for a plasma laser: (1) to obtain an intensely recombining plasma (this automatically ensures filling of the upper working level), and (2) to efficiently depopulate the lower working level. Here we shall discuss the questions associated with the first problem.
