Abstract
The color centers can lase at RT of near RT if we use a pulsed pump. We describe a flashlamp color center laser at RT with (F2+)* center in NaF Mg2+ and (F2+)H in NaCl OH-. The lasers are tuned from 1.05 to 1.27µm for (F2+)* and 1.52 to 1.76 µm for (F2+)H. The energy per pulse is few mJ. A RT the output power drops after few 105 pulses for (F2+)* and few 103 pulses for (F2+)H. If the NaCl OH- crystal is cooled to -40° the (F2+)H laser emission is stable.
