Abstract
THE PROGRAM PROPOSED HERE WILL STUDY THE PROPERTIES OF A POTENTIAL NEAR-INFRARED-WAVELENGTH, TUNABLE SOLID STATE LASER. THE ACTIVE ION, TRIVALENT TITANIUM, HAS PREVIOUSLY DEMONSTRATED BROADLY TUNABLE OPERATION IN THE HOST CRYSTAL SAPPHIRE, BUT IS CHARACTERIZED BY AN UPPER-STATE LIFETIME TOO SHORT FOR PUMPING BY CONVENTIONAL FLASHLAMPS. IT MAY BE POSSIBLE TO OBTAIN A LONGER LIFETIME FROM TITANIUM IN ANOTHER HOST, MAGNESIUM ALUMINATE. SPECTROSCOPIC MEASUREMENTS ON CRYSTALS OF TITANIUM-DOPED MAGNESIUM ALUMINATE WILL BE PERFORMED, AND THE POTENTIAL FOR OBTAINING BROADLY TUNABLE, EFFICIENT, LAMPPUMPED OPERATION WILL BE ASSESSED BASED ON THE MEASUREMENTS.
