Title: Solar pulser for laser pumping

Abstract

The invention discloses an apparatus for providing solar energy to the side of a longitudinally extending laser in pulses comprising a first cylindrical opaque body having a central cylindrical bore in which the laser is mounted, the body having longitudinal passages extending radially outwardly from the central bore. The body is mounted for rotation on its longitudinal axis within a second, non-rotating longitudinally extending opaque body, the second body also having longitudinally and radially extending passages. The outer ends of the passages in the second body are provided with focusing lenses, and mirrors are pivotally mounted on the exterior of the seconnd body to direct sun light into the passages thereof. The laser may be fixed to and rotate with the first inner body, or may be fixed relative to the outer body, and not rotate.
