The lamps used for pumping lasers represent electrical loads which are difficult to drive due to the wide range of impedance presented by the lamp to the driving source. The power conditioning systems used to interface between the lamp and the primary power source are reviewed with an eye toward current practice and trends for the future. We examine a wide range of operating requirements and attempt to characterize various power conditioning systems with regard to the difficulties associated with these requirements.
