Paper Abstract

In this paper, the absorption and fluorescence spectra of Tm3+:LiNbO3 crystals at room temperature were reported for the first time. The energy levels and experimental absorption oscillator strengths were obtained from the absorption spectrum. According to Judd-Ofelt theory, the intensity parameters (Omega) (lambda ) ((Omega) 2 equals 3.30 multiplied by 10-20 cm2, (Omega) 4 equals 1.37 multiplied by 10-20 cm2, (Omega) 6 equals 0.84 multiplied by 10-20 cm2) were worked out by a least-square-fitting procedure. With these values, electric dipole oscillator strength, radiative transition probability, radiative lifetime, branching ratio and integrated emission cross-section were calculated. The potential use of Tm3+:LiNbO3 crystal as a laser material was also discussed.
