Appendix A: Survey of Laser Emission Characteristics

A.1  Introduction

Lasers and laser emission characteristics are central to quantum optics. Here, we provide, in tabular form, a brief survey of laser emission characteristics. This exposition gives emphasis to wavelength coverage and includes published data compiled in a review by Duarte (2003), in addition to newly selected results from the open literature. The vast majority of the lasers included in this survey can be classified as macroscopic emission sources of coherent radiation. An alternative description, for these lasers, would be macroscopic sources of quantum emission.

The aim of this appendix is to provide an expeditious first reference to the various types of lasers available ...
