Springer Science & Business Media, Jan 1, 1999 - Technology - 746 pages
4 Reviews
Written from an industrial perspective, Solid-State Laser Engineering discusses in detail the characteristics, design, construction, and performance of solid-state lasers. Emphasis is placed on engineering and practical considerations; phenomenological aspects using models are preferred to abstract mathematical derivations. This new edition has been extensively updated to account for recent developments in the areas of diode-laser pumping, laser materials, and nonlinear crystals.

Page 17 - Stimulated absorption and emission processes always occur side by side independently of the population distribution among the levels. So long as the population of the higher energy level is smaller than that of the lower energy level, the number of absorption transitions is larger than that of the emission transitions, so that there is an overall attenuation of the radiation. When the numbers of atoms in both states are equal, the number of emissions becomes equal to the number of absorptions; the...
Page 5 - Spontaneous emission is a statistical function of space and time. With a large number of spontaneously emitting atoms there is no phase relationship between the individual emission processes; the quanta emitted are incoherent. Spontaneous emission is characterized by the lifetime of the electron in the excited state, after which it will spontaneously return to the lower state and radiate away the energy.
Page 21 - ... with the radiation field. As a result of the selection rules, an atom may get into an excited state from which it will have difficulty returning to the ground state. A state from which all dipole transitions to lower energy states are forbidden is metastable; an atom entering such a state will generally remain in that state much longer than it would in an ordinary excited state from which escape is comparatively easy.
Page 6 - Q(v)B 21 is the stimulated radiation; its phase is the same as that of the stimulating external radiation. The probability of induced transition is proportional to the energy density of external radiation in contrast to spontaneous emission. In the case of induced transition there is a firm phase relationship between the stimulating field and the atom.
