Pulse characteristics diagram
Calculates peak power, pulse energy, period, etc, from laser or electrical pulse characteristics (repetition rate, average power, pulse width). For optical pulses, wavelength is considered and photon flux is given. A Gaussian pulse shape is assumed.

Both lasers and electrical pulsed circuits often need an estimation of the individual pulse characteristics based on easily measurable quantities such as the average power and repetition rate.
When using this calc to describe electrical circuits, the "wavelength" and "photons per pulse" fields are obviously meaningless.
