Abstract
Laser action in Neodymium doped inorganic aprotic solvents POC13 and Se0C12 has been known formany years, but there has been little work in this field recently. Very little work has been reportedon ions other than Nd3+. The ability to readily change the dopant, vary concentrations, add co-dopantsetc at low cost is attractive, and using modern laser techniques it is possible that these materialsmight again be useful. In particular there are a variety of possible solvents which have not beenexploited to date which offer the possibility of tailoring the non-radiative rates of the various levelsfor the particular transition required.
