Abstract
ADVANCED TUNABLE LASER MATERIALS FORM THE BASIS FOR SATISFYING FUTURE ARMY SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS. SINCE IT IS NOT YET POSSIBLE TO PREDICT FROM THE EXISTING BODY OF SOLID-STATE THEORY WHICH HOST CRYSTAL AND ACTIVE-ION DOPANT LEADS TO A SUITABLE LASER FOR A GIVEN WAVELENGTH RANGE, AN EMPIRICAL APPROACH IN MATERIALS DEVELOPMENT FOR TUNABLE LASERS IS NECESSARY. THE PROPOSED EFFORT ADDRESSES THIS SITUATION BY MAKING USE OF A VERY COST-EFFECTIVE TECHNIQUE FOR THE GROWTH OF SMALL SAMPLES SUITABLE FOR CHARACTERIZATION.
