Abstract

Ho:Tm:LuAG has been grown, examined spectroscopically, and lased at 2.1 μm. Ho:Tm:LuAG was selected for this experimental investigation when quantum-mechanical modeling predicted that it would be a good laser material for Ho laser operation on one of the 5I7 to 5I8 transitions. Lasing was achieved at 2.100 μm, one of the three wavelengths predicted to be most probable for laser action.
