Abstract
The flow characteristics of a liquid laser cell were investigated by a laser-Doppler flowmeter. Water was used as the test liquid. The flow cross section of the cell was 2 mm x 30 mm with the liquid flow transverse to the axis of the optical cavity. Laminar flow characteristics were compared with those of turbulent flow which was generated by placing a fine wire mesh at the entrance port of the cell. The heating effects of the xenon arc lamps, which are used for excitation of the laser material, were investigated. It was found that the arc lamps did not significantly affect the flow characteristics of both the laminar and the turbulent flow cases.
