Abstract

The photostability of rhodamine 6G, rhodamine 610 and pyrromethene 567 in solutions, wet-gel and dried sol-gel host media has been determined. A method for the synthesis of xerogel monoliths has been modified to reduce the preparation time for the doped sol-gel samples, and high optical quality sol-gel samples doped with laser dyes have been prepared. A high efficiency and photostability is observed for xanthene laser dyes in wet and dried sol-gel phases but not for a pyrromethene laser dye.
