Abstract

Laser generation with modified poly(methyl methacrylate) (MPMMA)-doped matrices with several different types of Rhodamine-based dyes was obtained. Pumping with a frequency-doubled Q-switched Nd:YAG laser was used. During the experiments, high conversion efficiency was achieved. The strong nonlinear dependence of the operating lifetime and the conversion efficiency of material tested on the pump-pulse-repetition rate was observed. Possible mechanisms responsible for the conversion-efficiency drop and the useful lifetime of the material are discussed.
