Abstract:The excitation and relaxation processes relevant for establishing optical gain in Al2O3:Er3+ on the 4I13/2 -> 4I15/2 transition at 1.5 µm are investigated. Excited-state absorption in the wavelength range from 900-1800 nm is measured in a pump-probe experiment. The 4I13/2 and 4I11/2 lifetimes are measured after direct excitation and the macroscopic parameter of the energy-transfer-upconversion (ETU) process (4I13/2, 4I13/2) -> (4I15/2, 4I9/2) is determined independently from both decay curves. By use of the Zubenko model the microscopic parameters of ETU and energy migration are derived. It is found that above the Er3+ concentration at which the transition from static to migration-accelerated ETU takes place also the 1.5-µm amplifier gain is diminished by this process.
