We present for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, a Yb:YAG laser operating in a continuous wave (CW) on the quasi-three-level laser at 1024 nm, based on the 2F5/2 – 2F7/2 transition, generally used for a 1030 nm emission. The use of a pump module with 16 passes through the crystal allowed the realization of a Yb:YAG thin-disk laser with 370 mW of CW output power at 1024 nm. Moreover, intracavity second-harmonic generation (SHG) has also been achieved with a power of 45 mW at 512 nm… CONTINUE READING
