Abstract
Recent data on the excited state absorption (ESA) in the glasses doped with Nd3+, Er3+, Pr3+ is reviewed. In particular, the data on Russian commercial laser glasses are presented. The different techniques applied to obtain ESA data are analyzed and classified into two groups: (1) the methods using indirect measurements and based on the results of approximate theories, (2) the methods using direct spectral measurements of the pumped samples. The possibilities of predictions of glass composition effect on the ESA are considered.
