Enhanced Energy-Transfer Process in Codoped Solid State Laser Materials FX Hartmann Department of Chemistry, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, Long Island, New York 11973 SR Rotman Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering PO Box 653, Beer-Sheva, Israel Abstract Enhanced energy transfer between donors and acceptors can be achieved in materials in which donor-acceptor pairing occurs. Theoretical analysis and experimental examples are presented 1. Introduction Several of the most exciting solid-state lasers are those in which a crystal is codoped with two or more ions. One ion (the acceptor) is chosen on the basis of its efficiency as an emitter, ie it exhibits a strong lasing transition at a desirable wavelength …
