Abstract : Certain areas of collaborative US-UK research funded by the Innovative Science and Technology Office of SDIO via AFOSR has reached a stage of advancement where it was considered that these were no longer appropriate to 6.1 research funding. In particular, research which was carried out at the universities of Manchester and Loughborough in collaboration with Gel-Tech Inc., Fla. and the Advanced Materials Research Centre (AMRC) of the University of Florida, was concerned with novel applications for sol-gel glasses in the fields of lasers, optical devices and holographic imaging. The aim of contract F61708-92-5 was to transition this work into one or more of the defence research laboratories in the USA. This final report is concerned with the outcome of these attempts.
