    We apply a combination of optical low coherence reflectometry and a layer-peeling method to the synthesis of a fiber grating. The index modulation amplitude we obtain is compared with a Krug measurement result and the dc refractive index is derived from the phase measurement.

    A new calorimetric interferometry using a pulsed high power Nd-glass laser was developed to determine small absorption coefficients of the order of 10-3 cm-1 or less at the wavelength of 1.06 μm. The absorption coefficients of the liquid specimens, C6H6, C6H5Cl, 0-C6H4Cl2, and 1,2,4-C6H3Cl3,...

    The possibility of using the thermally activated optical absorption bands for a resonant pump in the emitting level of highly doped Nd laser materials is discussed. This potential is demonstrated by the continuous wave 1064 nm laser emission under 885 nm pump in concentrated (up to 6.8 at. %)...

    We have observed cw laser action on a new transition (4D3/2→4I11/2) of the Nd3+ ion at 380 nm. This was demonstrated in Nd:LaF3 using an upconversion pumping scheme in which near infrared (788 nm) and visible (591 nm) pump photons from cw dye lasers produce stepwise excitation of the Nd3+...

    Coherence of both self-frequency shifted solitons and short-wavelength non-soliton radiation generated in a micro-structure fibre was investigated experimentally for the first time. Their spectral, temporal and polarization characteristics were studied as well. We found the solitons generated in...

    Laser-induced diffusion ("implantation") of magnesium atoms into silicon was studied experimentally. Neodymium-glass laser irradiation (? = 1.06 �m, t ~ 0.4 ms) was found to increase the diffusion coefficient and solubility of magnesium in silicon. Current-voltage and capacity-voltage...
