Laser crystals: their physics and properties
This convenient source of reference analyzes spectro-physical properties in activated insulating laser crystals and systematizes mechanisms for obtaining stimulated emission based on these properties. Tabulations of the most important spectroscopic and pumping parameter data for insulating laser materials and the wavelengths of stimulated emission from activated insulating laser crystals permit selection of the active medium for a specific application. In addition, the book discusses the fundamental properties responsible for laser phenomena in activated crystals and a number of spectroscopic methods devised to investigate these processes. Thus it can also serve as an introduction to the physics of laser crystals and to the stimulated emission spectroscopy of activated crystals. The second edition contains updated data in the tables and more recent literature references.
