At such orientation of the pump sources 4 the zigzag path of the major part of the pump light is provided due to sufficiently large angle of divergence or convergence of the light shaped by the pump sources 4.
При такой ориентации источников 4 накачки зигзагообразное прохождение большей части формируемого источником 4 пучка света накачки обеспечивается благодаря достаточно большому углу расхождения или схождения света, формируемого источником 4 накачки.
This allows to provide a zigzag propagation of the entire pump radiation inside the laser slab as well as to enlarge the number of optical pumping sources, which can be placed near each of the first lateral faces.
Это позволяет обеспечить зигзагообразное распространение всего излучения накачки внутри активного элемента, а также позволяет увеличить число источников оптической накачки, которые могут быть размещены около каждой из первых боковых граней.
The tires were wide balloon jobs with deep zigzag treads.
С широкими баллонными шинами и глубоким зигзагообразным протектором.

The zigzag path of the major part of pump radiation inside the slab 1 provides for an increased path length through the laser medium.
Зигзагообразное прохождение большей части излучения накачки внутри пластины 1 обеспечивает увеличение длины пути этого излучения в активной среде.
The needle rod can be designed contoured or wave- formed or zigzag-formed.
Стержень иглы может быть выполнен рельефным или волнообразным, или зигзагообразным.
At the same time high transparency of such polymer and its low refraction index assist to provide the zigzag path of laser radiation to be output and of pump light inside the slab 1 with small losses.
В то же время высокая прозрачность такого полимера и его низкий показатель преломления обеспечивают зигзагообразное прохождение лазерного излучения и света накачки внутри пластины 1 активного элемента с малыми потерями.
