Abstract

A continuous-wave, diode-pumped, room-temperature Tm:YAlO3 laser was built, characterized, and compared with a theoretical model. Spectroscopic parameters of the laser crystal, such as the pump band (H-3(4), manifold) lifetime, the upper laser level (F-3(4) manifold) lifetime, and the absorption coefficient were measured. The experimental data were used to calculate the quantum efficiency of Tm self-quenching of the H-3(4) manifold. (c) 2006 Optical Society of America.
