Light-induced grating study of excitation migration in Er-, Tm-, and Ho-doped YSGG laser crystals

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Migration of electronic excitation is an important process influencing population inversion in laser crystals. The light-induced grating (LIG) diffraction technique directly addressing the spatial motion of excitation has been used actively to study energy migration in laser crystals and glasses.1-4 In LIG diffraction experiments, a transient population grating is created by two mutually coherent laser beams and probed by a third beam. After the pump light is off, the diffraction signal decays exponentially with the decay rate, K, determined by the excitation life-time, τ; angle between the writing beams, Θ; and the diffusion coefficient, D.5
