Paper Abstract

Laser-related properties of pyrromethene-580 doped modified polymethyl methacrylate, including conversion efficiency, operational lifetime, laser induced damage resistance of the polymer matrix and photodestruction of the impregnated dye, were studied under short-pulse and long-pulse laser pumping. High efficiency and operational lifetime have been achieved in the short-pulse mode. Effect of a laser resonator feedback on both the conversion efficiency and lifetime was revealed and studied in the long-pulse operation mode.
