Description of Holmium-doped Yttrium Lithium Fluoride
Common lasing mediums for lasers are crystals, such as YAG, YLF, sapphire, etc., doped with a rare earth element like neodymium, erbium, or holmium.
Holmium-doped Yttrium Lithium Fluoride (Ho: YLF), emitting at 2.06 micrometers, is a promising material for laser target designators. Optical pumping of Holmium: Yttrium Lithium Fluoride (Ho: YLF) crystal with a 790-nm continuous-wave diode-laser array can generate 56 mW of 2.1 μm laser radiation with an optical-to-optical conversion slope efficiency of 33% while the crystal temperature is held at 77 K.
