High-efficiency, high-power and low threshold Yb3+:YAG ceramic laser



High-efficiency, high-power and low threshold Yb3+:YAG ceramic laser



Optics Express 17(25): 23344



We present a high-power, high-efficiency and low threshold laser prototype based on doped ceramic Yb(3+):YAG. We achieved an output power of 9 W with a slope efficiency of 73% and a threshold of 1 W at 1030 nm in quasi-Continuous Wave (QCW). Moreover, we obtained an output power 7.7 W with a slope efficiency of 60% in Continuous Wave (CW). Finally, a characterization of a low losses tunable cavity for several laser wavelengths with an output power exceeding 5 W is reported.
