Abstract:

The report reviews the published literature on the application of lightemitting diodes to the pumping of solid-state laser rods. Because of the requirements of matching the LED output to the absorption bands of the active laser impurity ions, most work in this field has concentrated on the ternary alloy LEDs such as gallium aluminum arsenide and gallium arsenic phosphide systems. Data tables on these materials are appended to the report.
