Abstract
Results of experimental studies of bleaching of F-2 color centers (CC) in LiF crystals are presented. Bleaching of these centers was shown to take place in two-photon absorption from the excited state. The effect of bleaching on the emission of neodymium lasers with LiF:F-2-passive Q-switches was studied. Phenomenon of spontaneous narrowing of emission spectrum is due to arising in LiF:F-2 crystal of absorption grating (caused by destruction of F-2 CC), that has spectral-selective properties. Polarization characteristics of nonlinear transmission of YAG:Cr4+ crystal a model is developed, in which the absorption on the wavelength of 1.06 micrometers occurs due to three linear dipoles oriented along the crystallographic axes.
