Abstract

High resolution spectroscopy brings new data on the spectroscopic and energy transfer properties of the transparent (Cr,Nd):YAG ceramics. The role of joint superexchange and electric dipole interactions in the Cr-to-Nd energy transfer is evidenced and the calculated emission quantum efficiency is essentially determined by the Nd concentration, 52% for 1 at.%Nd and 77% for 2 at.%Nd. The implication of Cr and Nd concentrations on the laser emission and heat generation under broad-band pumping is discussed
