Paper Abstract

Basic laser performance data for the 4F3/2 - 4I13/2 transition of Nd3+ in phosphate, silicate, and germanate glasses with various doping concentrations are presented. A slope efficiency of 1.1% was achieved in Q-100 phosphate laser glass. The resonator loss analysis indicates that there is no significant excited state absorption at 1.355 micrometer for phosphate glasses. Simultaneous operation of both the 4F3/2 - 4I13/2 and the 4F3/2 - 4I11/2 transitions of Nd3+ in phosphate, silicate, and germanate glasses have been achieved using two different methods. Laser output from these two transitions demonstrate good temporal and spatial overlap under the tested conditions.
