Abstract

We report a simple theoretical model for the calculation of the dependence of filter quantum efficiency versus laser pump power in an atomic Rb vapor laser-excited optical filter. We present the calculations for a 532.4-nm Rb filter that can be used to detect the practical and important frequency-doubled Nd:YAG laser. The results of these calculations show that the filter’s quantum efficiency is relatively insensitive to the laser pump power. The laser powers required to pump the filter range from 3.6 to 226 mW per square centimeter of filter aperture.
