Paper Abstract

Analysis of the absorption spectrum of Neodymium: Sodium Beta'' Alumina allows calculation of the theoretical radiative lifetime of the 4F3/2 level. Comparison with the experimentally measured radiative lifetime then yields the radiative quantum efficiency. Finally, the stimulated emission cross section can be obtained from the calculated Judd/Ofelt parameters and the fluorescent linewidth. Experimental measurement of single pass gain compares moderately well with that calculated from theory and with that measured in a previous platelet laser.
