Abstract

Room-temperature tunable-laser action has been observed in Cr-doped SrAlF5. The measured tuning range is 852–947 nm in a quasi-cw laser mode. The effect of nonequivalent Cr sites in SrAlF5 is studied from the absorption and the excitation spectra. A broad absorption band peaked near 750 nm does not contribute to the Cr emission and appears to be associated with a nonradiative site.
