In the early phases of the solid state amplifier program, emphasis was placed on devices which amplify giant pulses. The theory of gain measurements together with experimental results have been reported. Deterioration of rubies has been described and means for inhibiting the damage were developed. In this report further gain measurements are presented. Development of spiking free LASERS, both by mode control and by feedback control, is a natural extension of the previous work. We intend to amplify the spiking free pulse to obtain a high energy pulse in the microsecond and millisecond time scales. Author
