Abstract:

The report summarizes the results of a twelve month research program to investigate various high power, tunable nonlinear optical devices, including parametric generators and dye lasers, and to investigate efficient second and fourth harmonic generation of NdYAG lasers. During the program, tunable parametric generators capable of covering the entire range from 0.4 micrometers to 4 micrometers were constructed, 40 energy conversion from 1.06 micrometers to 0.53 micrometers was achieved, 1 watt average powers were achieved at 0.266 micrometers and tunable dye lasers with up to 300 mJpulse with a pulse length of less than 8 nsec were demonstrated.
