Abstract

A continuous-wave crossed-Porro prism Ho3+:YAG laser is presented and compared with a corresponding mirror resonator. A maximum output power of 30.7 W is reached with a slope efficiency of ${67.4}{\%}$ with respect to the absorbed pump power. The laser output beam shows a very good beam quality of better than M2 < 1.2 which clearly surpasses that of the mirror resonator. In terms of alignment sensitivity, the crossed-Porro prism resonator is superior to the mirror resonator due to the retro-reflective nature of the prisms in the axis around the apex.
