Paper Abstract

We have applied magnetic assist and magnetic pulse compression to copper vapor laser and studied the switching characteristics, especially with the attention to the energy dissipation characteristics. As for magnetic assist, a suitable delay time was studied. And 2-stage MPC was designed using a simulation code and an all solid state driver with SI thyristors was developed.
