Abstract

Efficient laser performance of Cr-doped LiSrGaF6 (LiSGAF) has been demonstrated near 820 nm, using a Kr-laser pump source. Cr: LiSGAF is a new material that is closely related to the previously reported laser crystals, LiCaAlF6:Cr3+ (Cr:LiCAF) and LiSrAlF6:Cr3+(Cr:LiSAF). The emission cross section and lifetime were found to be 3.3 x 10(20) cm2 and 88 mus, respectively. Assessments of the absorption oscillator strengths reveal that LiSGAF possesses an odd-parity distortion at the Cr sites that is of intermediate magnitude, compared to LiCAF and LiSAF.
