Paper Abstract

New powerfull waveguide laser is created on neodymium glass radia­ ting on wavelength. 1.06 µm . The laser generates pack of giant pulses with duration 30-40 nsec and several MW power. Total energy of the pack of pulses reaches 20 J in time period 1 msec. A bunch of neodymium glass spoke waveguides with a diameter of 1.5 mm is used as an active media. waveguide are located round the pumping lamp. Flexibility of the active elements makes possible getting any ne­ eded distribution of radiation intensity. Simple construction (without electrooptical modulators of light and traditional Fabri-Perot resonator) made possible creation of a highly reliable laser system for treatment of wounds, combustions, etc. on big surfaces.
