Paper Abstract

This presentation is divided in two parts. In the first part it is done a rapid but fairly exhaustive description of all the active media which have been studied in the recent years for their potential use as tunable solid-state laser systems. It is shown their superiority on the other existing ones, in relation with the applications they allow consider. I mention too some of their drawbacks and, linked to these drawbacks, the optical studies and the search for new materials which are still necessary. As a matter of fact, in the second part, a more precise description is made of these optical studies in relation with the theoretical models, and more particularly with the predictions of the Single Configuration Coordinate model -for it is the easiest one to work up from classical experimental data-, which have been proposed to account for processes such as the non-radiative and the excited-state absorption processes.
