Paper Abstract

A new method has been developed for direct measurements of unsaturated and saturated gain in lasing media as well as optical losses in laser resonators. The saturation parameter can be determined if single-frequency laser performance is achieved. This method has been successfully applied to measure and compare lasing features of the media created in sputtered hollow cathode discharge (HCD) copper ion lasers operating on 780.8 nm transition.
