Abstract

Quasi-cw operation of Ti:sapphire crystals pumped by a chopped cw argon-ion laser was used to determine gain and loss coefficients of this material. A considerable variation in the material loss coefficients was observed as a function of the coordinates of the pumped volume in the laser crystal, indicating crystal inhomogeneity.
