Stimulated Emission in the Presence of Strong Nonradiative Decay in Crystals

  • A. Kaminskii

Abstract

This article deals with the current state of the physics of laser crystals which present stimulated emission at three microns or longer wavelengths. In the beginning a short history and a review are given. Then some specific properties of self-saturating three-micron transitions of Er3+ ions and Ho3+ ions in insulating crystals are considered. Special attention is paid to the new functional schemes of three micron solid state lasers, in particular to those involving sensitization, deactivation, and to the so-called feed-flowing schemes. Finally, some problems concerning the prospects and possible applications of three-micron and longer wavelength crystal lasers are briefly discussed.
