Paper Abstract

The spectroscopic properties of F3+ ions in tetrahedral sites in garnets, together with the good packing of these sites around the dodecahedral position occupied by rare-earth ions, favor a very efficient energy transfer from Fe3+ to TM3+. Since Fe3+ does not introduce additional losses, this ion is a potential sensitizer for Tm3+ laser emission.
