Paper Abstract

A seeded vertical gradient-freeze technique has been used to grow Ti:Al203 single crystals with low residual infrared absorption from charges containing between 0.15 and 1.0 wt.% Ti203 in tungsten crucibles. In laser experiments on samples cut from these crystals, room-temperature cw operation has been achieved for rods containing between 0.024 and 0.099 wt.% Ti203.
