Abstract

We have demonstrated a diode-pumped Yb:LiYF4 (Yb:YLF) laser oscillator for the first time to our knowledge. A wide tuning range of 25 nm and a high slope efficiency of 50% were obtained at a high laser-diode pump intensity of 100 kW/cm2. Emission and absorption spectra of the Yb:YLF crystal at 8 K represent a wide laser gain width of 38 nm, indicating efficient laser operation similar to that of a four-level laser system with a reduced saturation fluence of 11 J/cm2.
