High-Temperature Color Center Applications

S. C. Rand

In phase-conjugate optics, new applications of color centers have been demonstrated. Research on color centers may yield improved, solid state versions of liquid devices—tunable lasers, Q switches, and mode-lockers—which incorporate crystals. These solid systems would be less complicated than liquid ones, and well suited for communications and remote sensing applications.
