Abstract
The spectroscopic properties and several applications of a new nonlinear material developed for use with the CO2 laser are described. The material, which is a prototype of a potentially large class of such solids, is constructed by doping a normally transparent material, KC1, with an impurity ion, ReO4, to produce absorptions in the frequency range of interest to the CO2 laser. In this paper we discuss the spectroscopy of the Re04 ion in KC1 and then proceed to describe several applications of this material to the CO2 laser . Using this material, extracavity pulse compression from a CO2 oscillator has been demonstrated. Second, the material has been used intercavity to produce modelocking. Both of these results are described.
