Abstract : Measurements to correlate the gain profile of ruby laser rods with optical quality and pumping light intensity. Curved mirror optical cavities were studied with regard to the production of spike free laser outputs. A feedback system with Pockels cell gain control was constructed and applied to a ruby laser. Development of a multi-gigawatt oscillator-amplifier system was completed. Y2O3:Eu(3+) was tested as a laser material with no success thus far. (Author)
