Abstract : The report describes work directed toward the design and fabrication of a gas laser oscillator and a solidstate chelate laser operating at wavelengths ranging from 5.0 to 0.3 microns. New classes of sensitized fluorescence and their sensitizers were investigated and system efficiency was improved through sensitizer purification. Some of the new sensitized systems investigated show promise of operation at or above room temperature. The scientific basis for sensitized fluorescence is clarified through a detailed analysis and description of the mechanism of energy transfer. Appropriate laser calculations and optimization were accomplished and associated laser test cavities, heat exchangers, and other equipment were built in preparation for testing the new materials.
