The paper presents the results of study some dynamic characteristics of the copper brightness amplifier. The active medium of the copper vapor laser was used as a brightness amplifier. The time dependence of the gain is considered. Optimal time delays between the reflected signal and the amplified are presented. The results of the study can be used for the developing of visualization systems by means of such image brightness amplifiers.
The control system for bistatic laser monitor was developed. This system includes digital circuit and high-voltage modulator. The control system provides synchronous pumping of two active elements: an illumination source and a brightness amplifier. The time shift between triggering pulses is regulated by a variometer and its maximum value is 40 ns in case active load. The MOPA system was realized. Experiments on visualization of a test object were done. The example of such visualization was demonstrated.
