Paper Abstract

Stable and high gain of U-violet laser pulses was achieved in Ce:YiLF4 with nanosecond flash lamp pumping (nsFL)-`Soft' pump. it is due to neglectly low probability of two-step ionizations of Ce3+ with nsFL pumping. Gain was not observed for this crystal under KrF-laser pumping-`Hard' pump. Two-step ionization of Ce3+ reduces of quantum yield emission of Ce3+ and prevents to population inversion 5D-4F of Ce3+ at laser pumping.
