Abstract

We recently reported that Ti 3 + -doped low-silica calcium aluminosilicate glass presents long luminescence lifetime ( 170 μ s ) and broad emission band ( 190 nm ) shifted toward the visible region when compared with those from Ti 3 + :sapphire single crystal and Ti 3 + -doped glasses [ Phys. Rev. Lett. 100, 027402 (2008) ]. Here we demonstrate that this glass also shows high values of both gain cross section ( 4.7 × 10 19 cm 2 ) and luminescence quantum efficiency ( 70 % ) . By comparing these values with those for Ti 3 + :sapphire crystal, we can conclude that the studied Ti 3 + -doped glass is a promising system for tunable solid-state lasers.
