Paper Abstract

The influence of gamma and electron irradiation on optical and lasing properties of Y3Al5O12, Gd3Ga5O12, YAlO3 and LiNbO3 single crystals doped with rare-earth ions was studied. The laser output energy in the Nd-doped laser crystals and (gamma) -irradiation is decreased due to passive losses on the laser generation wavelength 1.06 micrometer (reabsorption of the laser radiation by color centers). The color centers in YAG-Er crystals may fulfill the sensibilizator function providing an increase of the pumping efficiency and output energy of the laser generation at 2.94 micrometer.
