CW Laser Operation from Er:YAG, Er:GGG and Er:YSGG

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We report the first cw operation of monolithic Er:YAG, Er:GGG and Er:YSGG lasers at wavelengths near 3 µm. Pumping with a 960-970-nm Ti:sapphire or InGaAs diode laser, we have observed thresholds as low as 5 mW and power outputs as high as 190 mW, with absolute efficiencies approaching 30%.
