Abstract : The report discusses a modulation procedure which will be used to obtain pulsing, mode-locked operation from the CO2 laser. An analysis is presented to explain the mechanism by which multimode output from this normally single-frequency laser is obtained. An estimate is given of the enhancement in peak pulse power to be expected, as compared with the previous cw laser power. An analysis is also given for possible mode-locked or FM operation of the GaAs diode laser. (Author)
