Abstract

Based upon time resolved spectroscopy of 13-mm xenon filled flashlamps, we have constructed a unique dynamic pumping model to predict the gain performance of active mirror amplifiers. The model, which includes the effects of spontaneous emission, concentration quenching, water quenching, and amplified spontaneous emission, uses only spectroscopy data from small glass samples as input. The use of the model in amplifier/system optimizations will be described.
