Abstract
This paper describes the results of preliminary measurements of the fluorescence properties of a laser dye in a silica gel matrix, produced through solgel processing techniques. These measurements enable observation of the effects of photodegradation of the dye by intense pulsed laser radiation with intensities characteristics of dye laser pumping. Time decay and spectral properties of the fluorescence from dye-doped gels were measured before and after photodegradation, yielding information about the effects of the gel matrix on the dye, its photodegradation, and recovery of the dye fluorescence with time.
