Paper Abstract

Copper vapor lasers (CVLs) have been used in high-speed photography and flow visualization to study spray droplets, projectiles, turbines, and textiles. Attention is presently given to a new design generation of CVLs which offer 25-35 nanosec pulse width, single/multiple flash, fiber-optic delivery of light, automatic synchronization, operation from single phase, and up to 32 kHz repetition frequency. An account is given of the results of illustrative applications of these CVLs.
