Laser Materials for Solar-Pumped Lasers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Solar laser active media play an essential role in the success of solar laser emission. Physical and laser properties of the commonly used Nd:YAG and Cr:Nd:YAG solar laser media are firstly explained. Ce:Nd:YAG is then introduced as recent solar laser material for enhancement of solar laser efficiencies. Other laser media as Cr:Nd:GSGG and Alexandrite are briefly described.
