Paper Abstract

The optical characteristics of organically modified silicates (ORMOSILs) are discussed. The absorption spectra of ORMOSIL samples undoped and doped with pyrromethene 580 were measured and compared. The doped sample was utilized in an oscillator/amplifier experiment. Output energies on the order to two millijoules were observed and an amplifier gain of 1.44 was measured.
