Paper Abstract

The small signal gain coefficients of Ho:Tm:YLiF4 (Ho:Tm:YLF) have been measured as a function of pump energy fluence and Ho concentration, in order to determine the optimum conditions for efficient pulse amplification. The results show that, for Ho:Tm:YLF amplifier systems, the available pump energy fluence ultimately dictates the Ho concentration.
