Abstract:

Work done in two broad areas is summarized. The first is work directed specifically towards the fabrication of a prototype light amplifier having a two-color input and a two-color output the second is work on materials which might eventually be of value in light amplifiers. The work which leads directly to the two-color light amplifier is described along with that work which was rejected for the final prototype. The final method, using two photoconductors on the input, is covered in more detail. A full description of the construction of a 6 x 6-in. panel is given and the exact formulation of the various layers appears in the Appendix. Results are given for the two prototype panels to be delivered under the contract and the means of testing and demonstrating the panels is described. A section of the report is devoted to a description of the mounting and testing equipment for these panels. The second area of work covered in the report is on materials. This includes measurements on cadmium sulfide and cadmium selenide photoconductive powders.
