Efficient mode-locking in a Tm:KY(WO4)2 laser is demonstrated by using InGaAsSb quantum-well SESAMs. Self-starting ultrashort pulse generation was realized in the 1979-2074 nm spectral region. Maximum average output power up to 411 mW was produced around 1986 nm with the corresponding pulse duration and repetition rate of 549 fs and 105 MHz respectively. Optimised pulse durations of 386 fs were produced with an average power of 235 mW at 2029 nm.

(Springer, 2015)A compact intracavity-pumped microchip Ho laser is realized using stacked Tm:KLuW/Ho:KLuW crystals pumped by a laser diode at 805 nm; both crystals are cut for light propagation along the Ng optical indicatrix axis and emit with polarization along the Nm axis. Maximum CW output power of 285 mW is achieved at a wavelength of 2080 nm for 5.6 W absorbed pump power in the Tm:KLuW ...2018-09-14

(Optical Society of America, 2009-12-07)We demonstrate laser action in diode-pumped microchip monolithic cavity channel waveguides of Yb:KGd(WO4)2 and Yb:KY(WO4)2 that were fabricated by ultrafast laser writing. The maximum output power achieved was 18.6 mW with a threshold of approximately 100 mW from an Yb:KGd(WO4)2waveguide laser operating at 1023 nm. The propagation losses for this waveguide structure were measured ...2012-01-23
