Pagination or Media Count:
Pulsed as well as cw laser action has been observed in a new host material for Nd3 ions, Na beta alumina. The unusual characteristics of the material and its known physical properties are briefly described. Absorption spectra, fluorescence lifetime, laser-pulse shape, and peak emission wavelength are presented as experimental evidence, and comparisons are made with other Nd3 host materials. Some exciting new possibilities for integrated-optics applications are explored. Author
