Abstract
THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROGRAM ARE TO ESTABLISH THE SYNTHESIS AND CRYSTAL GROWTH PARAMETERS REQUIRED TO PRODUCE TMAL3(BO3)4. THE CRYSTALS WILL THEN BE EVALUATED IN TERMS OF STANDARD SPECTROSCOPIC MEASUREMENTS FOR LASER APPLICATIONS. IN PARTICULAR, LINE WIDTHS, LINE STRENGTHS AND FLUORESCENCE LIFETIMES. PRELIMINARY LASING BY PUMPED LASER SOURCES WILL BE EVALUATED. ANTICIPATED BENEFITS/POTENTIAL COMMERICAL APPLICATIONS - THERE IS INCREASING NEED FOR COMPACT SOLID STATE LASERS CAPABLE OF MULTI-FREQUENCY OPERATION OVER THEVISIBLE TO INFRARED REGION. THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS MATERIAL IS OF INTEREST BECAUSE THIS NONLINEAR HAST CAN FORM MONOLITHIC DEVICES FOR PRODUCING LASER EMISSION OVER THIS OPTICAL RANGE.
