Paper Abstract

We report a simple theoretical model for the calculation of the dependence of filter quantum efficiency versus laser pump power in an atomic Rb vapor laser-excited optical filter. We present the calculations for a Rb filter transitions that can be used to detect the practial and important frequency-doubled Nd lasers. The results of these calculations show the filter's quantum efficiency versus the laser pump power. The laser pump powers required range from 2.4 to 60 mW per square centimeter of filter aperture.
