Paper Abstract

Dye laser action has been observed for a number of scintillators to wavelengths as low as 3550 Å in the near ultraviolet spectral range. The compounds that have been lased in this region are sodium salicylate, 2, 5 diphenyloxazole (PPO), 2, 5 diphenyl furan (PPF), 2, 5 di- 1-naphthy-1, 3, 4 oxadiazole (PPD), 2 phenyl-5-1, 3, 4-oxadiazole (PBD), and aminobenzoic acid. These fluors are of current interest because laser action in these materials has been difficult or impossible to achieve by other dye laser pumping techniques.
