10.Expression (1) has been taken from an equivalent expression used to described the integrated pulse energy extracted from an optical amplifier operating on a transition showing homogeneous broadening. See F. Hopf, in High Energy Lasers and Their Applications, edited by S. Jacobs, M. Sargent III, and M. O. Scully (Addison‐Wesley, Reading, Mass., 1974), p. 96. The conversion from pulse energy in the atomic units of the above reference to intensities results in Eq. (l) where is a factor of larger than the text‐book saturation intensity, as described in A. Yariv, Introduction to Optical Electronics, 2nd ed. (Holt, Reinhart, and Winston, New York, 1976), p. 108. The characteristic times and τ denote the lifetime of the upper laser level and the temporal FWHM of the output pulse, respectively.
