Abstract

We describe single-frequency operation of a diode-pumped Nd:YLF laser in the range 1311.9–1317.2 nm. It can be used for the interrogation of the clock transition in calcium (1314.0 nm) or spectroscopy in hydrogen and metastable singly ionized helium (1312.6 nm). By using a twisted-mode cavity, we have obtained output powers of 830 and 970 mW at 1312.6 and 1314.0 nm, respectively, in a single longitudinal mode.
