Abstract : The influence of certain operating parameters of the ruby laser on its energy output were investigated. These parameters were: (1) capacitance; (2) transparency of dielectric membrane; (3) optical mass of ruby rod; (4) xenon lamp input energy; (5) adjustment of resonant cavity. After these tests an output of 1 joule was obtained in the form of stimulated emission. Further measures were proposed for increasing the output energy, lowering the working temperature and increasing the size of the ruby rod. These suggestions resulted in an output of 10 joules.
