Paper Abstract

Results of a cycle of experimental investigations of a multi-wavelength metal vapor laser system based on original configuration of a multi-medium metal vapor laser source are presented. Novelty of our approach consists in that two gas-discharge active elements (on copper bromide and strontium vapors) are arranged in a common cavity, and each of them is pumped by an independent power supply unit, which allows them to be optimized independently for excitation conditions and thereby the output set of lasing wavelengths and their relative power distribution to be regulated. This makes the above-described system promising for a number of scientific and technological applications. The total output power of 11 spectral components lying in the range 0.43–6.45 μm reached ~17 W.
