Abstract

A method is suggested for the calculation of the spatial distribution and coherency of pulsed capillary gas lasers with waveguide resonators. The results of the calculation show that the employment of waveguide Fabry-Pérot resonators with internal mirrors for the formation of spatially-coherent low-divergence radiation is reasonable unless the pulse duration is small relative to the formation time of stationary modes. In the case of short-pulsed lasers, a substantial difference between the observed optical characteristics and those predicted by the theory of stationary modes is demonstrated theoretically and experimentally.
