Abstract

A stable output, high power diode-pumped Tm: YLF laser operating at 1908 nm with FWHM line width less than 0.1 nm is reported. Using a volume Bragg grating, 41.1 W of output with M2∼2 under an incident pump power of 111.7 W was achieved, corresponding to an optical-to-optical conversion efficiency of 36.8% and a slope efficiency of 43.2%. A laser wavelength shift of only 0.3 nm with the incident pump power varying from 13.1 W to 111.7 W was observed.
