Paper Abstract

The problem of obtaining high pulse repetition frequencies in metal vapor lasers is urgent from the viewpoint of laser application to various technologies, increase of productivity of industrial laser systems, study of transient processes, etc. In addition, the high pulse repetition frequency provides large average laser radiation power in spite of a rather low energy extracted from a single lasing pulse. In this work, the possibility of increasing the pulse repetition frequency of a laser on self-terminated strontium ion transitions was investigated. The double pulse method was used to demonstrate experimentally that a pulse repetition frequency of ~1 MHz could be achieved at wavelengths of 1.03 and 1.09 μm of the strontium vapor laser. To explain the results obtained, the kinetics of the active medium was modeled using the self-consistent mathematical model of a He- Sr+ laser.
