Paper Abstract

Magnetic gain switching operation of a chemical oxygen iodine laser utilizing Zeeman effect on laser medium has been studied. This method is able to make a chemical oxygen iodine laser which operates in cw normally repetitive pulse laser. In order to obtain the largest ratio of peak power to cw power, experiments were carried out in this study. The wave form profiles of (pi) and (sigma) components divided with Zeeman effect were also investigated. Obtained ratio is the largest of 3.3 with cw power of 1 W. And it was found that (sigma) component contributed the pulse formation, when the polarization direction of output beam was not controlled.
