840 mW continuous-wave Fe:ZnSe laser operating at 4140 nm.


We report the demonstration of high-power (840 mW) continuous-wave laser oscillation from Fe2+ ions in zinc selenide. The output spectrum of the Fe:ZnSe laser had a line-center near 4140 nm with a linewidth of 80 nm. The beam quality was measured to be M2≤1.2 with a maximum slope efficiency of 47%. Small shifts observed in output wavelength with increased… (More)
