Abstract : Building on work done in Phase I of this study (See AD-748 863), research on near-infrared dye lasers continued along several lines. Eighteen more Kodak organic dyes were screened for laser action using a linear flash lamp for excitation. Six dyes lased between 840 nm and 960 nm. Four laser dyes were sythesized in 10 gram lots. These four dyes were tested for laser action in a variety of solvents, and outputs and lasing wavelengths were measured as a function of flash lamp loading, output mirror coupling, and dye concentration. Recommendations are made for further refinement of dye laser equipment leading to tests of a multi-flash infrared dye laser. (Author)
