Abstract : Work on a continuously-pumped, passively Q-spoiled YAG:Nd(3+) laser is discussed. Effective bleaching of the dye has not been obtained due to insufficient inversion. The oscillator portion of a ruby oscillator-amplifier system, consisting of a 3/8-inch by 4-inch oscillator and a 3/4-inch by 9-inch amplifier, is described. Material studies conducted on the sensitization of Eu(3+) fluorescence in Y2O3 are also outlined. (Author)
