Abstract

In recent years there have been several intriguing reports1,2,3 by Soviet researchers of tunable, color center lasers operating in LiF at room temperature with excellent stability and efficiency. Laser action has been ascribed to the aggregate centers F2, F2+, and F2 created by gamma irradiation of this material and Q-switching by F2 centers was also described4.
