This program is directed towards establishing a capability for manufacturing flashlamps that are to be used as optical pumps for laser systems. This report describes the work carried out during the sixth quarter of the program. Life tests were conducted on two lamps constructed with 1.0 mm thick walls of synthetic fused quartz. These lamps showed less degradation with life than did the second engineering test sample lamps constructed with 0.5 mm thick walls. Proposed changes to the lamp specification SCS-436A were recommended on the basis of lamp and test equipment data accumulated to date. The government furnished test laser was refurbished and the two government furnished life test vehicles were repaired.
