Paper Abstract

Cr-Alexandrite or Ti-Sapphire crystals are well known as tunable laser material. How about in glass? Is it possible to get tunable lasers from glass? Generally, glasses have lower crystalline field for Cr3+ ions. But, what happens in glass with a higher crystalline field? And what happen in Cr-doped aluminate glass or gallate glass in which the network former are the same as Alexandrite and GSGG? This paper examines the possibilities of getting tunable laser glass.
