Abstract : Performance of ruby optical masers is dependent on the optical quality of the material, as well as on the geometry of the resonant structure employed. The purpose of this investigation is to determine what optical test methods are most effective in evaluating ruby quality for laser applications. Description of equipment and techniques to be used is given for measuring such properties as optical density, large and sallANGLE SCATTERING, AXIS ORIENTA ION AND LINEAGE, AND OPTICAL PARALLELISM.
