Work is described directed toward the design and fabrication of a gas laser oscillator and a solid-state chelate laser operating at wavelengths ranging from 5.0 to 0.3 microns. During the reporting period, the optimized material using sensitized fluorescence was tested for laser action. Under the high energy intensities of flashes, photo-reaction products are detected. This problem has been solved using new sensitizers andor new solvents. But the quantum field is somewhat low with these sensitizers. Work is in progress to improve the quantum field. The mechanisms of the energy transfer in chelates have been further clarified and it is shown that the optical pumping scheme in the rare-earth chelate to achieve population inversion does not involve any inefficient process.
