Diode-laser-pumped monolithic Nd:YLF laser operating at 1.053 microm.


We describe a monolithic diode-laser-pumped Nd:YLF minilaser that operates at 1.053 microm. By aligning the c axis of the Nd:YLF crystal parallel to the laser resonator axis we are able to suppress completely lasing on the (higher-gain) 1.047-microAtmra nsition of Nd:YLE We describe the design and fabrication of the laser and report its cw and gain-switched… (More)
