The theory of stretching and compression of short light pulses by chirped volume Bragg gratings (CBGs) is reviewed based on spectral decomposition of short pulses and on wavelength-dependent coupled wave equations. Analytic theory of diffraction efficiency of CBG with constant chirp and approximate theory timedelay dispersion is presented. Comparison of(More)
On the basis of the perturbation expansion for electron gas energy in the third order to the electron-ion potential the pair and irreducible three-ion interaction potentials in metallic hydrogen are calculated. The irreducible potential of three-ion interaction has attractive nature at short interionic separation and oscillates at large ones. The(More)
The pairand three-proton interaction potentials for metal-phase hydrogen are calculated. Irreducible three-proton interactions are shown to be essential in the development of the metal hydrogen structure. Possible manifestations of the three-ion interactions in the structure of quickly quenched metallic systems are discussed. Existence of amorphous metals(More)
Chirped Bragg Grating (CBG) at tilted incidence is shown producing wavelengthdependent transverse beam stretching allowing for spectroscopy and spectral beam combining. Moiré patterned CBG at normal incidence is shown producing spectral comb filter. 2015 Optical Society of America OCIS codes: (090.2890) Holographic optical elements; (090.7330) Volume(More)
Analyzing the first equation in the BBGKY chain of equations for an equilibrium liquid-gas system, we derived the analytical expression for the atom work function from liquid into gas. The coupling between the atom work function from liquid into vacuum and the stability criterion of liquid in limiting points of the first type was shown (using I.Z. Fisher(More)
Recording of volume Bragg gratings (VBGs) in photo-thermo-refractive glass is limited to a maximum refractive index change about 0.002. We discuss various saturation curves and their influence on the amplitudes of recorded gratings. Special attention is given to multiplexed VBGs aimed at recording several gratings in the same volume. The best shape of the(More)
We present a theoretical study of various definitions of laser beam width in a given cross section. Quality of the beam is characterized by dimensionless beam propagation products (BPPs) Δx·Δθ(x)/λ, which are different for the 21 definitions presented, but are close to 1. Six particular beams are studied in detail. In the process, we had to review the(More)
