Abstract : The technique for measuring absorption loss at 1.06 microns has been improved to obtain reliable data from glasses that are not of optical quality. Experimental equipment has been set up to obtain the optical path change with temperature at 1.06 microns. The theory of crystal field effects on the fluorescence of Nd3+ is examined and correlation between life-time and optical absorption pointed out. An analysis is presented of the absorbed energy distribution in a cylindrical laser rod.
