Paper Abstract

Experiments that are designed to investigate the viability of polyacrylamide gel as a prospective host for use as solid state dye laser rods are described. We present data for absorption and fluorescence spectra for dye-doped gel samples. We also describe preliminary Nd:YAG second harmonic pumping of dye-doped samples within a simple dye laser optical cavity. We observed efficient dye laser oscillation.
