Paper Abstract

A simple method that allows the determination of the rates of the two-ion up-conversion processes governing 3-micrometers laser emission in concentrated erbium systems is presented. The method is based on the analysis of the kinetics of the 4I11/2 level, excited with short 532 nm laser pulses, for various pulse intensities.
