Paper Abstract

Properties of a crystalline passive Q-switch based on F2+(A) color centers in Li doped NaF for the ruby alexandrite lasers are presented. Preparation, spectroscopic and Q-switching characteristics (in these lasers), termo- and photostability of F2+(A) color centers are considered. Q-switches properties increase with photochemical reactions help is discussed. Possibility of passive Q-switches creation for lasers on lantanoids, Cr, Ti ions in various crystals with radiation wavelength 0.7 - 1.0 mkm is showed.
