We have conducted an investigation into the continuous-wave (CW) and passive Q-switching laser performance of the Yb:YCa4O(BO3)3 (Yb:YCOB) crystal, aiming to evaluate its capability of power or energy scaling in compact end-pumped lasers. Efficient CW laser operation was realized with output coupling changed over a wide range from 0.4% to 60%. Operating in CW mode in the long-wavelength sideband around 1085 nm, the Z-cut Yb:YCOB laser produced an output power of 10.7 W with an optical-to… CONTINUE READING
