Title: New laser transition in a Pr{sup 3+}:RbPb{sub 2}Cl{sub 5} crystal in the 2.3-2.5-{mu}m range

Abstract

Lasing at the {sup 3}F{sub 3} - {sup 3}H{sub 5} transition of the Pr{sup 3+} ion in a nonhygroscopic Pr{sup 3+}:RbPb{sub 2}Cl{sub 5} crystal is obtained for the first time at room temperature and the luminescent and lasing properties of the crystal are studied. The maximum differential cross section for stimulated emission in the 2.31-2.59-{mu}m band of the {sup 3}F{sub 3} - {sup 3}H{sub 5} transition is found to be 1.7x10{sup -19} cm{sup 2} and the lifetime of the {sup 3}F{sub 3} upper laser level is 0.11 ms. (lasers)
