Abstract : The findings from investigations into producing giant optical radiation pulses from ruby lasers by control of static cavity geometry are discussed, the experimental evidence produced by the investigations is presented, and a phenomenological model is proposed. Optimum ranges for the cavity parameters of length, mirror reflectivity, and misalignment are established. For the new giant pulsing method the output pulses produced by the static cavity geometry control method have been found to be similar to the output pulses obtained by the present conventional giant pulsing methods.
