Abstract:

The objective of the described program is to investigate experimentally and theoretically the important kinetic rate constants pertinent to the development of a high power visible laser. This research consists of three tasks. Each of the tasks are summarized TASK I - the purpose of the first task is to identify metal atoms systems that allow selective collisional relaxation processes to efficiently quench lower levels of potential laser transitions TASK II - The purpose of the second task is to determine the efficiency of various quenchants in deactivating the upper laser level of lead TASK III - The objective of the third task is to calculate electron impact excitation and quenching cross sections for the upper and lower laser levels of the metal atoms of interest.
