solid laser

solid laser

[′säl·əd ′lā·zər]
(optics)
A laser in which either a crystalline or amorphous solid material, usually in the form of a rod, is excited by optical pumping; the most common crystalline materials are ruby, neodymium-doped ruby, and neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet.

A large number of fused silica optics are installed during the construction of high power solid laser facility [1], such as national ignition facility (NIF) and laser MegaJoule (LMJ) which were both used to drive the inertial confinement fusion (ICF).
And the top-of-the-range model comes with a tripod and sends a solid laser line around the whole room.
Hence, elucidating the nature of light absorption and fluorescence of point defects in the laser modified fused silica is important for controlling the evolution of laser damage and designing an effective damage mitigation procedure in excimer laser applications and power solid laser facility [9].
The difference between the energy of pumping photons and the energy of laser's photons in optically pumped solid lasers using diode lasers and quantum defects, which are called quantum defect heating, is the main reason for the heat generated in the crystal lattice of the lasing medium in addition to heat resulting from transfer of non-laser-emitting upper levels to ground levels [6].

Experimental studies indeed found that solid lasers (213 nm wavelength) don't induce thermal damage or collateral damage in deep corneal layers.
This collection of papers provides an overview of current advances in high peak power solid lasers and also reviews recent results in the interaction of high power laser pulses with dielectric materials containing metal nanoparticles.
The difficulty of modulating gas, chemical and solid lasers however has delayed this promise.
