A flashlamp pumped Ho:Tm:LuAG laser, using Tm as the only sensitizer, has been demonstrated. Most flashlamp pumped Ho lasers utilize either Er or Cr as the major sensitizer while Tm acts as an intermediary in the energy transfer process to Ho. In this case, Tm serves as both the major absorber and transfers the absorbed energy directly to Ho. By evaluating this particular combination of dopants, the contribution of the various Tm manifolds to the pump process can be determined.
