Abstract

Oscillation at 5.5μm wavelength has been investigated in the low-phonon, moisture-resistant RbPb2Cl5:Dy3+ crystal in free-running mode at room temperature. In line with our knowledge this is the longest laser wavelength for a rare-earth doped crystal that does not require any special precautions for survival. Spectra and kinetics of luminescence of the new laser crystal were investigated under pumping to 1.3μm absorption band, corresponding to lasing experiments. Emission cross sections were determined for mid-IR transitions. It was found that emission cross section on the H926+F1126H1126 laser transition at 5.5μm wavelength is as high as 0.6×1020cm2.
