Surface damage during the colouration of laser-quality alkali halide crystals
- 25 Downloads
The cause of alkali metal loss and surface damage which take place during additive-colouration, using a simple heat-pipe, have been investigated. It has been found that both effects have their origin in the outgassing of the colouration tube and can be easily minimized, thus allowing the attainment of laser-quality coloured crystals.
