Abstract : This report describes the investigation and experimentation performed that led to the development and construction of a laboratory laser device of high source radiance. Also described are experiments which culminated in the production of narrow linewidth spectral emission (less than 0.2A) from a Nd-glass laser that normally emits in a bandwidth of from 10-100A (depending on pumping conditions). The effects of high spectral radiance on second harmonic conversion were studied. (Author)
