Abstract

The numerical simulation of a regenerative amplifier based on codoped Tm,Ho:YAG is presented. Within this

work, a maximum pulse energy of 3.1 mJ is observed for 0.9 kW continous wave end-pumping at 785 nm. The

simulation results demonstrate that interionic mechanisms such as upconversion and energy transfer significantly

influence the population of states and consequently, the amplification. In detail, the most dominant mechanisms

are identified by introducing the rate term kxNiNm as a quantity to compare the strength of all occuring

interionic mechanisms. It can then be shown that the energy transfer mechanism E6512 between Holmium and

Thulium ions is the greatest source of population loss for the upper lasing state 5 I7 in Holmium. In summary,

the presented model represents an efficient tool to characterize the influence of interionic mechanisms on the

extractable energy in solid-state media under pulsed operation.
