Abstract

The time dependent behavior of the radiation buildup in a giant pulse laser is described analytically, neglecting cavity losses. Expressions are derived for the photon density as a function of time, and for the delay time and the rise time of the radiation pulse. The curve of radiant energy density vs time is plotted for several representative values of the parameters involved.
