Paper Abstract

As the complexity and variety of laser systems has expanded over the years the capabilities and sophistication of analytical tools has increased as well. In this paper, the General Laser Analysis and Design (GLAD) code is described. This code is very versatile and has been used to analyze laser fusion, isotope separation, high energy laser, free-electron laser, excimer/Raman and other nonlinear optical systems. GLADV is user friendly and is fully documented with theory, command description, and numerous examples of operation.
