Abstract

We report on laser operation in a (6 at. % Tm, 5 at. % Yb): KLu ( WO 4 ) 2 codoped crystal. The vibrational frequencies of KLu ( WO 4 ) 2 are coupled to the electronic transitions of Tm 3 + at 1946 nm, creating virtual final laser levels at higher energy than the ground level H 6 3 of Tm 3 + . The longest recorded laser wavelength was 2039 nm, which is longer than permitted by a pure electronic transition in Tm 3 + ions in KLu ( WO 4 ) 2 . We show that every laser wavelength can be explained with the electron–phonon coupling effect, where the vibration frequencies were determined through Raman spectroscopy.
