Abstract:

The object of this work was to develop an efficient chemical gain medium suitable for visible wavelength high energy laser applications. Achieving this goal requires Demonstrating an efficient and scalable chemical source of electronically excited metastable atoms or molecules. Identifying a transfer agent that will rapidly accept energy from the metastables to generate a population inversion on a transition at visible wavelength. Developing a source of the emitting molecules capable of operating at densities adequate to extract the metastable energy before it decays by other means. jg p4
