Gain and bleaching investigation of IR-140 doped PMMA
Material gain of IR-140 doped PMMA thin films on silica was optimized. A polarization study showed no polarization dependence for the slab mode. Possible factors of rapid bleaching of the films, such as film thickness, pump intensity, oxidation and thermal damage were investigated.
