Paper Abstract

Shock wave radiation allows us to pump quite large volumes and, therefore, to obtain iodine laser beams with high energy and power. In particular, previously we carried out experiments on the shock-pumped iodine laser with a beam aperture up to 1.2 m. Radiation energy up to 6 kJ in a single beam with a pulse duration of 3 - 5 ns has been obtained. In this work we investigate the dynamics of inversion space profile formation in the iodine laser pumped by the shock wave radiation.
