The nuclear-pumped laser could, in theory, provide a small, efficient source of coherent optical radiation capable of many years of untended operation. The main deterrent to its realization is existence of the laser cutoff effect quenching of laser action by high energy radiation. An hypothesis based on electron-induced superradiance is in agreement with the experiment. A low threshold laser material, YAGCr-Nd, has been found to resist this effect up to doses of 960 rads.
