Here we report a new method for transition-metal (TM) doped II-VI Quantum Dots (QD) fabrication and first mid-IR (2-3 μm) lasing at 77K of Cr2+:ZnS QD powder (~ 27 nm grain size). Cr2+:ZnS nanocrystalline dots (NCDs) were prepared using laser ablation. The mid-IR photoluminescence (PL) and lasing were studied. The dependence of PL spectrum profile on pump energy demonstrated a threshold behavior accompanied by the appearance of a sharp stimulated emission band around 2230 nm. The stimulated emission band is shifted to the longer wavelength with respect to the spontaneous emission and corresponds to the peak of the Cr:ZnS gain spectrum. This was also accompanied by a considerable lifetime shortening.
