Description/Abstract

A monolithic laser fabricated from Nd-doped phosphate glass is described in which unidirectional and hence single-frequency operation is enforced by the acousto-optic effect in the laser medium. Reliable single-frequency output could be maintained indefinitely with an applied radio-frequency power of 0.2 W. Output powers up to 30 mW for 400 mW of pump power have been achieved.
