Abstract
A critical review of technology related to flashlamp pumping of solid-state lasers used in industry is presented within a systematic theoretical and experimental framework appropriate to a broad range of industrial applications from drilling to heat treating. A general overview of system considerations leads to general lamp performance requirements. These are then considered in perspective to current cost analysis considerations and operations research data. Recent developments in flashlamp pumped lasers are discussed and general comments on future trends in technology that affect industrial pulsed lasers are presented.
