Efficient high-power continuous wave Er:Lu2O3 laser at 2.85 μm.


We report on crystal growth, spectroscopy, thermal conductivity and (4)I(11/2)→(4)I(13/2)-laser performance of Er:Lu(2)O(3). Pumping with an optically pumped semiconductor laser at 971 nm, 1.4 W of cw output power with a slope efficiency of ∼36% at 2.85 µm was obtained at room temperature. This exceeds the Stokes efficiency due to an upconversion process… (More)
