Abstract

A technique for operating krypton-filled flashlamps at high repetition rates and with high efficiency in Q-switched lasers is described. The technique uses high simmer currents to remove the timing and amplitude jitter that occurs at high repetition rates when krypton-filled lamps are run with conventional, low simmer currents. Besides giving excellent pulse-to-pulse reproducibility in the laser output, the method also removes any tendency for the lamp to misfire or extinguish.
