Paper Abstract

Examined praseodymium doped crystals with 1 at.% of Pr3+ ions for YAG and SrLaGa3O7 (SLGO) hosts were produced using Czochralski method. The luminescence for the range of 200 - 800 nm and absorption spectra for a wide range of 200 - 6000 nm, for Pr3+:YAG and Pr3+:SLGO crystals have been measured. It was stated that for praseodymium doped YAG and SLGO crystals, the strongest peaks of luminescence occur at 0.489 and 0.502 micrometers and the strongest peaks of absorption occur at 0.44 - 0.5 and 0.58 - 0.62 micrometers bands. A free-running laser emission of (lambda) equals 0.62 micrometers radiation for both types of crystals Pr:YAG and Pr:SLGO for two different transmissions of output mirrors have been obtained.
