Abstract:

Experimental studies involving the interaction of high-power lasers with alkali and alkaline-earth atoms and molecules have been carried out. The motivation for this work has been to evaluate proposed methods for using these systems to create tunable coherent light sources in the near-infrared spectral region. In addition, much fundamental information has been obtained about these atomic and molecular systems, and on their interactions with light. The work can be divided into three areas studies of bound-free triplet emission from alkali molecules, studies of wave mixing processes, and experiments on barium-noble-gas mixtures. In addition, several smaller projects were carried out in closely related fields. AW
