Abstract:

The problem of converting optical pumping energy to coherent laser output efficiently is undertaken. A cesium-barium silicate composition, a low melting lithium silicate glass, and small melt of the cesium glass has been made for absorption and fluorescence measurements. Table I summarizes some of the properties of the three glasses whose laser action are to be investigated. The rods for test are 12 long and 12 diameter, with a fine grind on the cylindrical surface.
