Applied physics

widely in science and technology in comparison with other types of laser. The most attractive feature of the solid-state lasers as sources of coherent radiation, is the large variety of the lasing conditions, with the typical features including the different conditions of free lasing, passive and active synchronisation of modes, the giant pulse regime. Because of the influence of nonlinear self-effect of radiation, additional nonlinear-optical elements in laser resonators make it possible to control the lasing parameters, including the realisation of new lasing conditions. The expansion of the sphere of application of the solid-state lasers is associated with both the improvement of the technology of formation of new solid-state active media and with the development of new highly efficient methods of controlling laser radiation.

In the monograph, the authors examine in detail the problem of self-organisation of the radiation of solid-state lasers, describe the theoretical fundamentals of simulation of stochastic processes in the interaction of coherent electromagnetic radiation with the solid, and the principles of statistical nonlinear lasing dynamics. The physical mechanisms of the methods of controlling the radiation of solid-state lasers in the free lasing and giant pulse conditions are described, together with the method of synchronisation of pulses, stabilisation and optimisation of the parameters of solid-state lasers in order to produce powerful monochromatic radiation with adjustable frequency.
