ENSC 460/894 Assignment 3: (Feb. 24, 2005 due Mar. 3, 2005) 1 With reference to the Nd:Yag energy level diagram from the notes estimate the maximum possible efficiency of an Nd:Yag laser. Take the efficiency to given by the ratio of optical output power to input pumping power. (5 marks) 2 A pulsed Nd:Yag flashlamp pumped laser operates using a 100 µ F capacitor charged up to 2 KV for each pulse. The laser emits an approximately triangular pulse (see diagram in notes) of duration 1 msec and peak power 1 kW. Calculate the overall efficiency of the laser (assuming the Capacitor charging to be 100% efficient). 3 Calculate the approximate peak wavelengths from expected from the following materials given their bandgaps: GaAs (1.44 eV), GaP (2.26 eV) CdTe (1.50 eV), InP (1.35 ev), SiC (3.00 eV)
