Abstract

The first (to our knowledge) resonantly pumped laser action based on the F33H43 transition of a Pr3+ ion is demonstrated. Pr3+-doped RbPb2Cl5 laser in-line pumped at 1547nm exhibited slope efficiency of over 21% at 1676.5nm, despite the marginal quality of the laser sample available for this proof-of-concept experiment. This is believed to be the first non-Er3+ resonantly pumped 1.6μm eye-safe laser ever reported.
