SOLID STATE LASERS TUNABLE IN THE VISIBLE SPECTRUM AND NON-LINEAR MATERIALS IN GLASSESR. REISFELD
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, IL-91904 Jerusalem, Israel
A new family of solid state photostable tunable lasers in the visible is prepared by incorporation of a number of perylimide dyes into inorganic glasses or into composite materials prepared from inorganic glass with organic polymers. The lasers may be prepared in a bulk form or in thin films on a glass support, enabling single mode operation. The same techniques are also used for preparation of nonlinear materials whereby a large number of organic molecules or semiconductor particles are introduced into the glasses.
