Paper Abstract

Improvements in alexandrite laser technology have led to lasers with improved efficiency, higher brightness, more energy per pulse and higher average power. These improvements have come about because of understanding and solving the "problems" of low emission cross section, high damage probability, short fluorescence lifetime, and high thermal lensing in alexandrite together with improvement in alexandrite crystal quality.
