Laser performance results and Cr(3+)-Tm(3+) transfer efficiency studies are used to demonstrate that YAG is the preferred host for the Cr:Tm:Ho laser, and that highest efficiencies are obtained at relatively low Cr(3+) concentrations. A slope efficiency of 5.1 percent was achieved from a flashlamp-pumped room-temperature 2-micron Cr:Tm:Ho:YAG laser.
