Paper Abstract

A oscillator amplifier configuration of laser has been designed and demonstrated using an oscillator with a single titanium sapphire rod in a pumping chamber in a close coupled configuration with a single linear flashlamp. The amplifier was of a similar design but used a pair of flashlamps. Currently, it has produced in excess of 3 J/pulse in the free-running scheme at a repetition rate of 5 Hz. Some applications of this type of tunable laser are considered.
