Abstract

Efficient, room-temperature operation of a diode-end-pumped Tm:YAG laser is reported. With 53.4W of incident pump power, provided by two beam-shaped diode bars, we obtained 17.5W of output at 2.013µm in a beam with a beam quality factor, M2~6. A Ho:YAG laser, intracavity-pumped by the Tm:YAG laser, produced 7.2W of output at 2.097µm.
