abstract

Measured population dynamics of erbium metastable level in a Yb:Er:phosphate glass following the excitation with a Nd:glass laser is reproduced by a theoretical model based on rate equations. To our knowledge, this is the first model to include frequency hole burning of inhomogeneously broadened pumping transition of ytterbium ion. The model explains also the previously observed dependence of pumping efficiency on Nd:glass laser pulse length.
