Paper Abstract

New laser transition for 5.5 μm wavelength range was discovered in the moisture-resistant Dy3+:RbPb2Cl5 crystal. Pulse oscillation in free running mode was obtained under YAG:Nd laser pumping at 1.3 μm. Lasing slope efficiency was as high as 1% at room temperature. In line with our knowledge it is the longest laser wavelength for a rare earth doped crystal which does not require any special precautions to be survived.
