Abstract

We report the cw laser emission of Ho: YLF in an astigmatically compensated resonator under pumping by a laser diode array. We measured the laser efficiency at different operating temperatures of the crystal and the non-saturated gain coefficient at the peak wavelength of laser emission. The laser tunability extends from 2.040 µm to 2.075 µm.
