Temporal and spectral characteristics of a tunable LiF:F2- colour-centre crystal laser

Academic Article


  • A theoretical and experimental investigation was made of the temporal and spectral characteristics of a tunable LiF crystal laser with F2- colour centres. The temporal profiles of the output pulses overlapped considerably the pump laser pulses because of a large amplification cross section. A study was made of the influence of a change in the pump laser wavelength on the spectral and oscillation characteristics of the LiF:F2- laser.
