Injection locking and saturation intensity of a cadmium iodide laser

D. P. Greene, J. G. Eden

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A discharge-pumped cadmium monoiodide (CdI) laser utilizing isotopically pure Cdl2 (114 CdI2) has been injection locked with a flashlamp-pumped dye laser having a linewidth of 0.3 cm-1. Complete locking of the slave oscillator occurs for wavelengths between 655 and 660 nm and for injection intensities of ~5 W cm-2. The saturation intensity for the B → X band of Cdl has been directly measured with an excimer-pumped dye laser to be (125 ± 60) kW cm-2.
