Abstract

THE PHASE I RESEARCH DEMONSTRATED THE FEASIBILITY OF USING SOL-GEL PROCESSING TO PREPARE POTENTIAL LASER MATERIALS. THIS PHASE II PROPOSAL INCLUDES TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES AND A DETAILED WORK PLAN FOR OPTIMIZING THE PROCESS TO PREPARE SILICATE LASER GLASSES FOR EVENTUAL COMMERCIALIZATION. POTENTIAL ADVANTAGES FOR USING SOL-GEL PROCESSING ARE GIVEN.
