Abstract:

Thus, all the tasks of the project have been fulfilled. Task 1. Single crystals of doped and pure halides are synthesized and their optical properties are studied. Preforms are made and crystalline waveguides are produced on their basis. Task 2. Crystalline waveguides of the composition AgBrAgBr doped with dysprosium ions are obtained by extrusion, and their optical and spectral properties are studied. Task 3. Waveguides based on LiF fluoride are obtained by extrusion for the first time. Task 4. Spectroscopic properties of Dy3 ions in chalcogenide crystals and fibers are studied. Task 5. Crystals and ceramics doped with rare-earth ions, as well as glasses and crystals doped with bismuth ions, are synthesized. Their spectroscopic and lasing properties are studied. Task 6. New technologies are developed and various waveguiding structures waveguides and planar waveguides based on chalcogenide and fluoride crystalline and ceramic materials are obtained. The optical and lasing properties are studied.
