Abstract

The spectra of several Ar arc lamps were measured in the 0.4–0.9-μm range. The voltage and current characteristics of these lamps filled with various Ar pressures were also measured. One of the lamps was then used to pump a Nd-YAG laser, and the same laser was also pumped with a common Xe arc lamp. A comparison of the laser performance with both arc lamps is presented.
