Abstract:

Research was focused in two areas 1 Using excite-and-probe anti- Stokes Raman scattering apparatus, the nonequilibrium phonons which participate in the overall complex nonradiative decay in tunable solid-state laser crystals, were directly identified. Rise and decay behavior of different Raman-active phonon modes were measured. 2 A new laser ion, Chromium 4 in chromium-doped forsterite was discovered, and its spectroscopic and laser characteristics were investigated.
