Abstract

Erbium (Er)- and Ytterbium (Yb)-codoped monoclinic KLu ( WO 4 ) 2 single crystals were grown by top seeded solution growth-slow cooling method for several different doping concentrations. Growth parameters have been optimized to obtain macrodefect-free single crystals. Er energy levels involved in the I 4 13 / 2 I 4 15 / 2 were determined by 6   K polarized optical absorption. The maximum emission cross section for this electronic transition has been evaluated, being 2.85 × 10 20 cm 2 for E N m at 1535   nm . Laser oscillation in the 1.5 μ m range was obtained by pumping the Yb ion at 980   nm and sensitizing Er. The maximum output power achieved was 152   mW , with 1.2% slope efficiency.
