Abstract

We report what we believe is the first all-solid-state tunable ultraviolet laser pumped by the fifth harmonic of a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. Our laser based on a Ce3+:LiLuF4 active medium stably generates a single, satellite-free, 0.88-ns pulse under 5-ns, 10-Hz repetition rate pumping conditions. A novel tilted-incident-angle side-pumping scheme resulted in a simple laser-cavity design.
