Abstract
Two calorimeters for measuring high peak power laser pulses have been constructed by the NBS and delivered to the Newark Air Force Station, Newark, Ohio. These calorimeters are designed to measure pulses having intensities great enough to damage the volume absorbing material in normal calorimeters. In these new calorimeters the volume absorbing material is already fragmented and flowing dry N2 gas is used to extract the temperature rise information. Pulse energy can be in the range 1 to 15 kJ. Wavelength range is from the it to uv by employing various volume absorbing materials.
