Paper Abstract

A discussion of the laser system requirements for fusion applications is presented. A comparison between the photolytic atomic iodine and electron beam pumped rare gas oxide laser systems are made in the context of a fusion laser system. The use of spontaneous and superfluorescent emission from selected rare gas halogen exciplex systems to pump high average power atomic iodine lasers is explored with emphasis on the pump source kinetics in relation to amplifier design.
