Paper Abstract

The first room temperature stable tunable color center (CC) distributed feedback (DFB) laser is described. The laser utilizes stabilized F2+** centers in LiF (LiF:F2+**) as a gain medium. Tunable DFB lasing was achieved in the near IR region (882 - 962 nm) with a lasing linewidth of less than 0.2 cm-1. The lasing threshold was found to be 1.2 mJ, while the slope efficiency with respect to pump energy was found to be as high as 3%.
