Abstract

V2+-doped KMgF3, KMnF3, RbMnF3, CsCaF3, CsCdCl3, and NaCl single crystals are analyzed with respect to their electronic properties and their suitability as laser material for vibronic-laser operation. All systems show broadband emission and together cover the spectral range between 1.9 and 0.9 μm. KMgF3, KMnF3, RbMnF3, and CsCaF3 have the potential for tunable pulsed- or cw-laser operation at room temperature, whereas laser emission with NaCl:V2+ may be expected below 200 K. The CsCaF3:V2+ material has been successfully operated between 1.24 and 1.33 μm.
