Paper Abstract

The pulse from a transversely excited atmospheric CO2 laser consists of a sharp spike followed by a long, drawn out tail region spanning about 2-5 μs caused by the nitrogen gas in the laser cavity. The nitrogen tail is undesirable in many applications because it decreases the average power of the laser pulse. High stability and energy-efficient laser-induced plasma shutter to clip the nitrogen tail of CO2-TEA based DIAL is built. Optimum shutter gases pressures and laser breakdown intensities are reported. Clipped laser pulses are also field tested.
