burst mode laser

A high-frequency pulse-rate laser with an output limited by the heat capacity of the laser medium. Instead of having continuous cooling, the laser operates until the medium reaches a maximum acceptable temperature, then shuts off and is aggressively cooled before repeating the cycle. This approach eliminates much of the wavefront distortion normally associated with the thermal gradients created by the cooling process.
