1 November 1990 Optical properties of solid-state laser-type materials in the near IR
Author Affiliations +
Work being done on solid-state lasers in a single laboratory is reviewed. Recent results on broadly tunable laser systems based on transition metal ions are addressed, discussing excited-state absorption measurements and the search for new emitting centers. The main emission spectra obtained with the rare earth doped laser materials Nd(3+), Er(3+), Tm(3+), and Ho(3+) are shown and discussed.
