Paper Abstract

For modulators driving high-power discharge lasers, themajor system issues are system performance, efficiency, output voltage and risetime, and required electrical output characteristics dictated by the design of the laser cavity. From the system issues, modulator trade-offs are determined; these design trade-offs include shape of the output waveform from the modulator, switching approach for the modulator, grounding and shielding of the modulator with respect to the laser load, and interaction between the laser and the modulator.
