Abstract : This report gives results of an experimental and theoretical investigation of the spectral and transient characteristics of solid-state and semiconductor lasers and also a theoretical study of the nonlinear interaction of coherent lightwaves due to the higher order coherent Raman effects. It includes also a description of the detailed results obtained in a successful attempt at improving both the output spectra and the spiking characteristics of ruby and CaWO4:Nd(3+) lasers and some preliminary experimental results of higher order coherent Raman processes confirming that volume amplification of coherent lightwaves via the Raman processes have been observed.
