Abstract

Tm-doped YAB single crystals were grown by the top-seeded flux technique. High resolution (0.04 cm-1) Fourier transform spectroscopy was employed to determine the term diagram of Tm3+ ions in YAB. Six transitions were identified from the 3H6 ground state of the Tm3+ ions to the 3F4, 3H 5, 3H4, 3F3, 3F2, and 1G4 manifolds. All of their Stark components were assigned by using the temperature dependence (9-100 K) of the absorption lines. The low temperature spectra consists of sharp lines, broadened ones and those split to components. These features may be attributed to Tm-Tm interaction and optical hyperfine structure.
