Paper Abstract

The results of laser action in Cr, Tm, Ho doped YSAG and YAG are presented in this paper. Output characteristics of these holmium lasers acting in different conditions (a few laser cavities, resonator optics, pumping pulse energy, and pulse duration) are shown. One interesting result has been obtained -- optimal pump pulse duration strongly depends on the kind of laser medium host (for YAG it is equal to 500 - 600 microsecond(s) ).
