Abstract
In this work, we consider the prospects of development of the visible, and IR laser-diode pumped lasers based on TR3+-doped double-fluoride crystals. On the basis of estimates of the probabilities of competing non-radiative energy-transfer processes obtained from the experiments and theoretical calculations, the conclusions are drawn on the efficiency of up-conversion pumping and selfquenching of the upper TR3+ states excited by laser-diode emission. The effect of the host composition, dopant concentration, and temperature on the efficiency of up-conversion processes is demonstrated on the example of the YLF:Nd, YLF:Er, BaY2F8:Er, and BaY2F8:Er,Yb crystals. The transfer microparameters for most important cross-relaxation transitions are determined and the conclusions about interaction mechanisms are drawn.
