Abstract

The most progress in searching for active media for NPLs, studying their characteristics, and developing various nuclear-laser devices was achieved when high-pressure gas media were used. However, there have been repeated attempts in Russia and the United States to pump different condensed media with nuclear radiation and carry out feasibility studies on developing powerful nuclear-laser devices based on these media.

Keywords
