Abstract

The systematization and analysis of the spectroscopic properties and temperature behavior of stimulated-emission parameters in activated condensed media, as well as the investigation of these properties in connection with the crystallo-chemistry of these compounds has resulted in the understanding of fundamental regularities of crystal-field disorder phenomena at Ln3+ sites in insulating laser crystals. In one of the discovered regularities, the structural-dynamic disorder is connected with the formulation of Ln-polyhedra statistics, the variety of which depends, in particular, on the concentration of the lasing-activator ions. Another regularity, the structural-static disorder is connected with the statistics of filling up the similar crystallographic positions by cations with different valency, and is generally independent from the content of laser-Ln3+ ions in the crystal. Experimental results among which are new low-temperature measurements on the spectroscopy of stimulated emission of Nd3+ ions on different disordered fluorine-and oxygen-containing crystals are presented to illustrate these objective principles. New data on record laser-wavelength tuning of octahedral Cr3+ ions in disordered La3Ga5SiO14 single crystals at 300K are also presented.
