Abstract : The patent describes an improved liquid lasing solution which is prepared by introducing neodymium trifluoroacetate into phosphorus oxychloride. Some Lewis acid is also desirably included in the solution in an amount to increase solubility of the neodymium III phosphorus dichloridate formed, optimize the intensity of fluorescense of the liquid lasing solution and enhance its operative efficiency. The new liquid laser solution is highly stable over relatively long periods of time, does not degrade under flash excitation, and obviates certain undesirable absorption characteristics of comparable prior art liquid lasing compositions.
