A High-Frequency Pumping Source for Metal Vapor Active Media

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Abstract: The results of the development of a high-frequency pumping source for active media on self-terminating transitions in metal vapors, which allows operation in the mode of a low energy deposition into the discharge, are presented. Reduced energy deposition into the discharge is provided due to the pumping of the active medium with short-duration high-voltage pulse (3 kV, 15 А, 40–60 ns). A record-high radiation-pulse repetition rate of 200 kHz in the active medium of copper bromide vapors was obtained when operating in the superradiance mode.
