Abstract

A model of the active medium in YAG:Tm3+ and CNGG:Tm3+ laser crystals is presented here and is used as the basis for studying the dynamics of the population and population relaxation of the energy levels of the Tm3+ ions under various intensities of steady-state pumping by a semiconductor laser diode to the 3H4 level. The minimum (threshold) pumping levels are determined for which lasing is possible.
