Paper Abstract

Dye doped ormosils have been proposed to create solid-state dye lasers. In this paper we investigated laser performance and laser-induced damage of rhodamine 6G, pyrromethene 567 and pyrromethene 597 organic dyes doped ormosils. A 10 ns, 532nm Q-switched Nd:YAG laser-induced damage thresholds were given in two kinds of ormosil matrices and a variety of dye doped concentration. In addition, laser-induced carbonization, damage mechanism and dye laser performance had been analyzed, and the possible explanation for these experimental results was given. The result indicate that the organic dyes doped ormosils are perspective for highly effective solid-state dye lasers.
