Abstract

The design and performance of a short-pulse high-repetition-rate CuBr laser suitable for bathymetry is described. The pulse width and peak power were 4.5 nsec and 30 kW, respectively, corresponding to 140 μJ/pulse. These conditions occurred at a repetition rate of 16 kHz and an overall efficiency of 0.14% within a compact long-lived sealed-off discharge.
