Paper Abstract

Dye-doped polymeric materials have ben developed for both laser-pumping and also flashlamp excitation. Spectroscopic properties of these hosts and other materials are reported. Successful laser operation has been achieved from ormosil and poly methyl methacrylate hosts doped with pyrromethene laser dyes. Conversion efficiencies in excess of 60 percent have been achieved from a less than ideal laser pumping geometry; output energies up to 132 mJ have been achieved from flashlamp-pumping of dye-doped rods.
