This chapter presents a qualitative explanation of the emission spectrum of a saturated amplifier when the amplifying spectral line is inhomogeneously broadened owing to the Doppler effect. Topics discussed include the role of geometry in the saturation regime on spectral narrowing and measurement of the arrow spectral line width of astrophysical lasers.

Keywords:   amplifier, spectral line, Doppler effect, spectral narrowing
