Abstract

The stimulated emission cross section of rare-earth transitions depend strongly on the host. The properties that effect the cross sections - line strength, linewidth, and refractive index - are reviewed, and rules for tailoring cross sections are discussed. To illustrate the application of these rules, the largest stimulated emission cross section for the **4F//3/////2 to **4I//1//1/////2 transition of Nd**3** plus observed for any oxide or halide glass was obtained for a new class of bismuth-chloride-based glasses. Spectroscopic and physical properties and laser parameters of these and other halide glasses are presented.
