Paper Abstract

This paper presents new analytical solution of equation describing, so called 'fast' non-linear absorbers, relaxation time of which is shorter than the time of interaction with giant-pulse laser. A special LambertW function was used for description of dynamics of non-linear absorber bleaching, i.e., the changes in transmission, given as a function of intensity of incident laser radiation. The result of performed analyses were compared with theoretical models for 'thin' and 'thick' 'fast' absorber as well as with experimental results obtained for non-linear YAG:V3+ and YAG:Co2+ absorbers.
