Abstract:

The research being carried out under this contract has as its objective the preparation of glass of high optical homogeneity, free of platinum inclusions, and of such composition as to be well suited for use in high energy laser applications. The investigation is divided into two tasks which are being undertaken concurrently. One task is the improvement of platinum so that is might be used in laser glass production without causing inclusions the other task is the development of an all-ceramic system, entirely free of platinum, that would be capable of producing homogeneous laser glass.
