Abstract

A novel BaY2F8 crystal doped with thulium ions is grown and extensively investigated. Owing to the large number of vibronic levels and to a favorable electron-phonon coupling, extremely wide absorption and emission bands around 1.9 microm are observed. A room-temperature Tm:BaY2F8 laser tunable over a 210-nm interval, from 1849 to 2059 nm, is demonstrated.
