Paper Abstract

The origin of excited-state absorption (ESA) that plagues the performance of Ti:YAlO3 as a laser material is discussed. It is proposed that two populations of Ti3+ exist in YAlO3. Those that have a lower photoionization threshold have to be eliminated to prevent the ESA from affecting lasing.
