Paper Abstract

The results of spectral (IR, UV-VIS, H NMR) , gel permeation chromatography and differential thermal analysis investigations of structures of dye foils consisting of bis-(4-dimethyl-amino-dithio-benzil)-nickel dye suspended in polymethylmethacrylate matrix, to be used for passive Q-switching in a 1064 nm laser, are reported. Results of experimental measurements and of numerical calculations of thermal and generating properties, and of the endurance of passive foil type Q-switches in the resona-tor of YAG:Nd3+ laser are also presented. Optimization of polymerization conditions has enabled the production of dye foils with high thermal and photochemical resistance, which give stable operation of a giant pulsed laser.
