Energy Levels and Branching Ratios of Tm3+ in Ten Garnet Laser Materials
Interim rept. 15 Jun 1990-15 Jan 1991
HARRY DIAMOND LABS ADELPHI MD
Pagination or Media Count:
A prediction of laser performance of Tm transitions from the F4 to the H6 manifolds in ten garnets has been made by using a quantum-mechanical model. Theoretical energy levels, branching ratios, and population inversion percentages were calculated to determine threshold as a function of temperature.
