The equations for coherent pulse propagation in an iodine laser are numerically solved for various combinations of saturable absorber and amplifier sections. The intention is to translate recent progress in iodine lasers into design of a 80-J subnanosecond laser suitable for use in target irradiatio ... [J. Appl. Phys. 47, 5360 (2008)] published Thu Aug 28, 2008.

To describe the laser drilling process, a theoretical model that includes expulsion of liquid material is developed. The model allows the calculation of drilling velocity and drilling efficiency as a function of the absorbed intensity. The same quantities were determined experimentally, using Nd-YAG ... [J. Appl. Phys. 47, 5460 (2008)] published Thu Aug 28, 2008.

A resonance Raman scattering study is presented of the annealing behavior of CuO implanted with 180-keV Cd ions to a dose of 1 x 10 ions/cm. As annealing progressed, large changes were observed in the Raman spectra which were obtained with the 488- and 476.5-nm lines of an argon laser to provide exc ... [J. Appl. Phys. 47, 5467 (2008)] published Thu Aug 28, 2008.

Double-heterojunction PbS-PbSe-PbS lasers were fabricated by hot-wall epitaxy allowing cw operation for heat-sink temperatures up to 120 K and pulsed operation up to 180 K. The emitted wavelength can be temperature tuned from 8.5 to 6.5 [mu]m for the cw and from 8.6 to 5.8 [mu]m for the pulsed mode. ... [J. Appl. Phys. 47, 5476 (2008)] published Thu Aug 28, 2008.

A stable continuous output, modulated with the c/L frequency of the cavity round trip, has been generated by means of an Ar-ion laser pumped dye ring laser operating in a traveling wave configuration. The train of self-excited pulses of nanosecond duration can be tuned over the whole spectral range ... [J. Appl. Phys. 47, 5470 (2008)] published Thu Aug 28, 2008.

GaAs double heterostructure lasers compatible with monolithic intergration of optical devices have been fabricated by wet chemical etching. Results for a variety of laser orientations are reported. External differential quantum efficiencies as high as 18% have been achieved, as well as threshold cur ... [J. Appl. Phys. 47, 3503 (2008)] published Fri Aug 29, 2008.

TEA-CO-laser-induced shock pressures in aluminum, cellulose acetate, and polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) targets were measured by both backsurface and in-material techniques as functions of peak laser power density and ambient air pressure. We report the first experimental observation of shock-pressu ... [J. Appl. Phys. 47, 3485 (2008)] published Fri Aug 29, 2008.

We have measured the transverse voltage from slant-angle-deposited metal films due to laser illumination as a function of film geometry. For a fixed laser spot size, the voltage is found to vary inversely with film width d for d small compared to contact separation a. For d/a >=~1 the voltage approa ... [J. Appl.
