Since nonradiative processes affect such critical parameters in solid-state laser operations as linewidth of optical transitions and energy-level exchange, an understanding of the coupling between radiative and nonradiative processes is important. This document reports upon one aspect of this interaction by developing an internal phonon theory for the thermal dependence of linewidth in Nd3 YAG.
