We demonstrate the advantages of using high levels of rhodium (2000–3200 ppm) to dope barium titanate for achieving finite absorption coefficients (0.36 cm-1), high two-beam coupling gain (11.5 cm-1), and acceptable response time (7 s) at 1.06 μm. We also report on the mass spectroscopy measurements on Rh:BaTiO3 samples indicating a small segregation coefficient for rhodium (below 0.01) and the presence of a relatively large concentration (6000 ppm) of unintentionally added strontium.
