Non-radiative energy transfer in doubly-doped solid-state laser materials Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Much work is presently ongoing investigating the codoping of crystals with acceptors and donors to achieve new, more efficient laser materials. In this paper, we investigate the possibility that in codoped materials, acceptors and donors are correlated on a microscopic scale even when the macroscopic doping appears to be uniform. A theoretical model for this transfer is presented; data from the most common solid-state laser materials are shown to exhibit this effect.
