Abstract: Abstract. The power supply of flash lamp-pumped a Nd: YAG solid-state laser basically consists of a trigger circuit which initiate the ionization of the gas into the lamp, a simmer circuit that keeps the ionized gas with a low-level dc current and a main discharge circuit where a storage capacitor is discharged into a flash lamp to pump the Nd:YAG laser. The impedance of the flash lamp presents a nonlinear variation and the gas deionization which can occur between two pulses laser, leading to another manual t…
