Polarization switching of an er : yb : cr: phosphate glass microchip laser


We show that the light of a commercially available Er : Yb :Cr :phosphate glass microchip laser end-pumped at 977 nm by an InGaAs laser diode can be switched between two linear polarization eigenstates when it is submitted to a polarized optical feedback. The flip occurs when the feedback phase is scanned by the external cavity length. In our experiments… (More)
