New tunable lasers for potential use in LIDAR systems

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We discuss the optical and laser properties of two new tunable laser crystals, Ce:LiSrAlF{sub 6} and Cr:ZnSe. These crystals are unique in that they provide a practical alternative to optical parametric oscillators as a means of generating tunable radiation in the near ultraviolet and mid-infrared regions (their tuning ranges are at least 285-315 nm and 2.2-2.8 microns, respectively). While these crystals are relatively untested in field deployment, they are promising and likely to be useful in the near future.
