pulse repetition frequency

1. In lasers, the number of pulses that occur each second.
2. In radar, the number of pulses that occur each second. Pulse repetition frequency should not be confused with transmission frequency, which is determined by the rate at which cycles are repeated within the transmitted pulse. Also called PRF. See also laser.

Since only moderate pulse energies are needed to drill small holes in nonreinforced polymers (indeed, high pulse energies can damage materials), higher laser power is best utilized by increasing the laser's pulse repetition frequency (PRF).
04" to 480" range in steel combined with a 15 to 2,000 pulse repetition frequency (PRF) covers a wide range of applications without incurring acoustic wrap around.
Addressing today's most advanced microvia drilling requirements, the Model 5330 incorporates a high-power, diode-pumped laser with a pulse repetition frequency of up to 70 kHz.
