Investigating diamond Raman lasers at the 100 W level using quasi-continuous-wave pumping.


Quasi-cw pumping is used to investigate the high-power characteristics of cw beam conversion in diamond Raman lasers (DRLs). We show that thermal gradients establish in DRLs at approximately 50 μs for a 100 μm pump beam diameter, and thus that the steady state for cw operation can be reached within the 100-300 μs pulse duration of conventional quasi-cw pump… (More)
