Liquid lasers have the advantage over gases in that they provide much higher. Get this from a library. Final report on research on solar pumped liquid lasers.

[John D Cox; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.;]. A nuclear pumped laser is a laser where the excitation is accomplished by nuclear energy. Weinstein, and R. Schneider, Research on Solar Pumped Liquid Lasers, University of Florida, Final Report NASA Contract No.

NAG-1–, Feb Google Scholar “Research on Radiation Induced Laser Plasma,” Final Report, NASA Contract Cited by: 1. In the SPL system, a pair of solar-pumped, multi-megawatt, CO2 lasers in sunsynchronous Earth orbit converts solar energy to laser energy.

The MPD system used indium phosphide solar cells to convert sunlight to electricity, which powers the propulsion system.

Various orbital transfer options are examined for these concepts. The authors report here a significant progress in side-pumped solar laser slope efficiency by pumping a mm diameter, 30 mm length Nd:YAG single-crystal laser rod.

Lasers offer a variety of advantages in performing key steps in the manufacturing process. They offer the ability to provide spatially precise and localised heating on potentially short timescales. Back to Solid State Lasers Sub-Table of Contents. Optical Pump Sources Solid state lasers are generally pumped optically.

This may be from xenon flashlamps which are probably larger but otherwise basically similar to those in photographic electronic flash units; via continuous arc xenon, krypton, or other discharge lamps, or more recently - and constantly growing in. Forward, R. "Advanced Space Propulsion Study - Antiproton and Beamed Power Propulsion", Final Report, 1 May - 30 JunHughes Research Laboratories, report AFAL-TR, DefenseTechnical Information Center #AD-A   Research and data for some of the following types of lasers comes from solar-heated designs that attempt to use concentrated sunlight to heat up an intermediate blackbody that in turn radiates onto a lasing medium.

For our purposes, we are replacing the heat of the Sun with a reactor power source.
