Abstract

It has been established that Tm3+ ions do not prevent multiple-wavelength oscillation in Cr:Tm:Er:YAG laser crystals inserted inside of the completely nonselective mirror resonator. The output mirror spectral selectivity needed for single-wavelength oscillation at 2.697 µm for a considerable excess of pumping energy over the threshold has been determined experimentally. It has been shown that Tm3+ optimum concentration in the crystals could be determined correctly in the described resonator scheme.
