Paper Abstract

A folded resonator for pulsed reactor-pumped lasers (RPL) is presented, which has a zigzag propagation inside and high coupling efficiency with the nuclear reactor. The equivalent length of gain cell in this device is multiplied. Thus higher optical intensity may be coupled out when high reflectors are available. For a 3He/Ar/Xe system, the energy loading is relatively uniform and the appropriate size for resonator can be easily achieved by calculations. A method for optimizing of outcoupling is discussed in the work as well.
