Paper Abstract

In this review we present the analysis of optically pumped alkali lasers research and development from their first proposal in 1958 to the current state. Main achievements and problems existing in this field of research are discussed and possible solutions of the problems are proposed. Detailed description of the most important experiments and their results are presented. We have tried to provide an extensive list of references on this subject.
