Paper Abstract

Active mediume of pulsed copper bromide vapor laser with and without admixture of hydrogen was studied as brightness amplifier in laser projection microscope. Admixture of hydrogen improved the uniformity of gain across the active mediume and prolonged its duration. Due to that with this brightness amplifier it was possible to obtain good quality amplified images of objects located several meters from the amplifier. Influence of amplifier saturation on characteristics of projection system was also studied.
