Summary and Info
This text explains the mutual influences between the physical and dynamic processes in solids and their lasing properties. It provides insight into the physics and engineering of solid state lasers by integrating information from several disciplines, including solid state physics, materials science, photophysics, and dynamic processes in solids. The text discusses approaches to developing new laser materials and includes data tables of basic parameters that can be applied to laser design. Novel materials and techniques used in recent developments are also covered.Contents - List of Abbreviations - Preface - Introduction - Solid State Laser Materials - Structure and Bonding of Solids - Garnet Crystals as Laser Hosts - Fluoride Laser Crystals: YLiF4 (YLF) - Photophysics of Solid State Laser Materials - Energy Transfer - Lasing Efficiency and Sensitization - Two-Micron Lasers: Holmium- and Thulium-Doped Crystals - Yb:YAG Laser - More on Other Crystals: Fluorides and Vanadates - Appendix: Diode-Pumped Solid State Lasers - References - Index
