Paper Abstract

We investigate the requirements for the pulse width and intensity of the pump beam, for the Fe:ZnSe lasing medium to reach threshold. The rate equation is solved for the time dependence of the population density, N2 of the 5T2 manifold which includes the upper level for the lasing transition.
