Paper Abstract

We study temperature and pump power dependence of fluorescence in Cr4+:forsterite crystal. We find that the luminescence yield has a strong temperature and pump power dependence. We also observe two-photon fluorescence induced by continuous wave pumping of Cr4+:forsterite and study its temperature behavior as well. The obtained results are used as a guidance to construct high-power, high energy femtosecond Cr4+:forsterite oscillator.
