1 June 1989 Characterization Of Sputtering-Based Unheated CuI And AuI Lasers
Author Affiliations +
In this paper we briefly describe the new room-temperature metal vapour laser in which a gas flow is used with a small sputtering cathode to produce a single shot, or low repetition rate, laser output on the CuI and AuI transitions. We summarise the results of studies made of the various aspects of the device physics including the sputtering and entrainment processes, the preionization of the metal vapour jet and the parametric dependences, and we discuss their implications for future development.
