Paper Abstract

The possibility of sensitization of rare-earth laser active ions with infrared (especially two- micron) emission by Fe3+ is discussed. The spectroscopic and luminescence decay measurements on Fe, Tm or Fe:Tm doped GGG or YAG show that a very efficiency energy transfer from Fe3+ in tetrahedral sites to Tm3+ takes place showing prospects for new sensitization schemes.
