Abstract
In the review article we explain the recent investigations on rare-earth doped glass and optical fibres for designing lasers which may be suitable for remote sensing and LIDAR applications. The paper explains the importance of engineering efficient lasing transitions in visible (480-650 nm) for generating UV lasers via one-stage harmonic generation. Besides visible transitions, we also demonstrate the transitions in near- and mid-IR via near-IR pumping scheme.
