Paper Abstract

Properties of the polymer-filled nanoporous glass (PFNPG) doped with different family dyes are reviewed in this paper. They include mechanical, optical, and thermo-optical properties of PFNPG as a host material for lasing and nonlinear absorbing dyes. Data on lasing and nonlinear absorption characteristics of dye-doped PFNPG are presented. From an analysis of these characteristics it is concluded that PFNPG is a new optical material perspective for creation of highly efficient solid-state dye lasers and laser radiation control elements including Q-switchers, mode selectors, and laser radiation power limiters.
