Abstract:

This program is intended to give the scientists at the Naval Research Laboratory the ability to evaluate new solid state laser crystals. The five crystals grown were gadolinium scandium gallium garnet GSGG doped with erbium andor thulium. The presumed congruent composition for undoped GSGG is GD2. 96Sc1.9Ga3.14O12. If it is assumed that the distribution coefficients are unity then the crystal compositions will be the same. Keywords Solid state lasers, Crystal structure, Crystal growth, Fabrication, Gadolinium, Scandium, Gallium, Garnet, Erbium, Thulium.
