Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Efficient and broadly tunable operation of Ce:LiLuF lasers can only be obtained by careful control of the pump and laser polarisations. Any sigma polarised radiation leads to formation of colour centres which can prevent lasing.
