Abstract:

Preliminary measurements were made on a 38 x 3inch neodymium-doped Kodak glass laser rod. The measurements performed were space and time resolved measurements of pump induced bi-refringence during and after the pump phase. The theoretical portion of the investigation completed covers a preliminary analysis of the pump induced birefringence. Two clad neodymium doped laser rods, and one undoped glass control rod, were ordered from the American Optical Company.
