Inner-shell excitation of atoms for the development of short wavelength laser sources
This work focuses on the feasibility of producing new short wavelength laser sources using inner-shell photoionization or shake-up excitation induced by laser-produced plasma pumping. Laser-produced plasmas effectively ...
Development of a high power, ultrashort pulse laser system
This work focuses on the development of a new high power, ultrashort pulse dye laser system based on solid state Nd:YAG pump sources for a synchronously pumped dye laser and a series of dye amplifiers. This system will be ...
Characterization of plasmas from a pulsed jet discharge with applications to VUV spectroscopy and micromechanics
Plasmas from a pulsed jet discharge have been characterized with respect to gas species and nozzle design. Spectral lines from the gas used in the pulsed jet are apparent in the visible region. The vacuum ultraviolet ...
