This paper describes using a hot isostatic pressing (HIP) to improve II-VI crystal characteristics and diffuse metal ions into laser host crystals. Thin layers of metal are sputtered onto the surface of zinc selenide and zinc sulfide crystals prior to being HIP treated. The pre and post treatment optical properties for these materials are measured using various methods and at a variety of dopant concentrations.
