Abstract

This work describes an experimental study of obtaining the amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) on sodium D-lines using nonresonance broadband optical pumping. ASE is observed at transitions D2 and D1 line: 589 nm (32 P3/2- 32 S1/2) and 589.6 nm (32 P1/2 - 32 S1/2). The active medium was pumped by the dye laser with FWHM of 5 nm, maximum radiation in the range 584.5-586.5 nm, and pulse energy above 2 mJ. The working temperature of the active medium was 260 , initial pressure of buffer gas-helium was 300 torr (operating pressure - 500 torr). A change in the absorption spectra at D lines at different temperatures of the active medium and buffer gas pressures was observed.
