Abstract

LiCaAIF6:Cr3+ single crystals doped with 3% CrF3 (Cr:LiCAF) have been grown by the Czochralski (CZ) technique in dimensions up to 1" diameter and 3" in length (Fig. 1). In this paper, we will address several important criteria related to the growth and characterization of this material. Cr:LiCAF has recently been demonstrated to lase efficiently when using laser pumping of small crystals.1 In this work we report on our efforts to grow large single crystals to be used for the flashlamp-pumped configuration.
