Paper Abstract

We examine crystals belonging to two wide families of compounds of general chemical formulae ABC3O7 and ABCO4 (A equals Ca, Sr, Ba; B equals Y, La-Gd; C equals Al, Ga) which appear to be promising active materials for the design of all-solid-state lasers. Inhomogeneous broadening of spectral lines influences weakly the extraction efficiency in the case of SrLaGa3O7:Nd and BaLaGa3O7:Nd but it is found to be a limiting factor controlling the performance of SrLaAlO4:Nd laser. Preliminary spectroscopic study indicates that chromium doped SrLaAlO4 and SrLaGaO4 may be promising active materials for the design of tunable infrared lasers.
