Abstract:This paper discusses the influence of the population dynamics on mid-infrared lasers. Specifically, the typically longer lifetime of the lower compared to the upper laser level has to be addressed in order to achieve highly efficient laser operation in this wavelength range. Examples of different operational regimes of the erbium-doped ZBLAN 3-μm laser are presented.
