Solid state lasers possess the following unique characteristics: Reliability and robustness - High level of safety - User-friendly - Maintenance-free - Low-cost performance, high-volume production - Compact size - Wide range of wavelength selection A solid state laser is an active solid state material that under certain conditions can emit Author: Yehoshua Y. Kalisky. Solid-state lasers and systems represent a one-billion dollar industry, and they are the dominant class of lasers for research, industrial, medical, and military applications. Given the importance of solid-state lasers, a graduate text is required that deals explicitly with these devices.
The long upper-state lifetimes makes solid-state lasers very suitable for Q switching: the laser crystal can easily store an amount of energy which, when released in the form of a nanosecond pulse, leads to a peak power which is orders of magnitude above the achievable average power. Bulk lasers can thus easily achieve millijoule pulse energies and megawatt peak powers. Solid-state laser and luminescent materials activated by rare-earth or transition metals ions are widely used for solid-state lasers, luminescent lamps, flat displays, optical fibre communication systems, and other photonic devices. The unique solid-state electronic properties enable the activators in solids to emit photons efficiently in.
