Paper Abstract

Solid state lasers based on the trivalent thulium ion which operate within the strong water absorption band in the 2zin region are discussed. This water band has maximum absorption in the range 1.92- 1.94pm. The relative merits of thulium lasers in the crystalline hosts YAG, YSGG, and YLF which operate in this wavelength region are discussed.
