Paper Abstract

The Czochralski crystal growth of pure Cr, Er and Ho doped as well as Cr,Er and Cr,Ho codoped yttrium silicate Y2SiO5 (YSO) is reported. The growth conditions for producing the inclusion free single crystals of high optical quality are discussed. Spectroscopic properties of the singly doped and codoped material at room temperature are compared. Energy transfer processes from Cr4+ ions to Ho3+ and Er3+ ions in YSO host have been demonstrated for the first time.
