Paper Abstract

A time-dependent model of a single-pass amplifier which treats upper laser level pumping by O2(1 Delta), deactivation by water, and stimulated emission within the flowing oxygen-iodine medium is described. An efficient algorithm for solving the coupled, flowing medium, and optical extraction equations is presented. The model indicates that extraction efficiencies comparable to CW efficiencies can be obtained with pulse repetition rates comparable to the rate of flow through the cavity and pulse lengths of the order of the time it takes to extract the energy stored in O2(1 Delta).
