Title: Transverse flowing liquid Kerr cell for high average power laser Q-switching and for direct modulation of high power laser beams.

Abstract

A fluid flow concept is applied in an optical apparatus to define a high gain stand-off, fast electro-optical q-switch which is highly impervious to high average power optical loads.
