Paper Abstract

Vibronic lasers are continuously tunable because of the interaction of lattice vibrations with transition metal electronic energy levels. Their tunability makes them attractive for a number of applications. The history, practical limitations on performance and basic theory of operation are described. Investigations of Ti:YA103 and Ti:GSGG, two promising new materials, are discussed.
