Abstract:

United Technologies Research Center is conducting a theoretical investigation of the fundamental processes affecting the operation, performance and application of electrically excited lasers having potential utility in a variety of areas of importance to the Navy. Particular attention is presently focused on the broadband Xenon Fluoride C yields A laser, which has the potential for efficient, tunable operation throughout the blue-green spectral region. The research at UTRC is closely coordinated with a complementary ONR-supported experimental program being conducted at Rice University. This Annual Report summarizes recent results of this investigation, and includes reprints of recently published papers in which specific results and conclusions of the research are described in detail. Additional keywords e-beam excited XeF laser rare gas-halide lasers blue-green lasers visible lasers transient absorption in the visible region rare gas-halide mixture synthesis efficient XeF laser.
