Abstract

We present the results of a novel numerical and experimental investigation aimed at obtaining efficient 1.05μm operation with a Yb:YAG laser. The model shows that the emitting wavelength of the Yb:YAG laser is affected by the combination of length and doping concentration of the gain medium. Efficient continuous-wave laser operation at the wavelength of 1050nm was experimentally obtained in good agreement with the model predictions. Based on continuous-wave operation, generation of 1.8ps laser pulses at the central wavelength of 1050nm, as well as 170fs laser pulses at the central wavelength of 1053nm, were realized.
