Abstract

We report the first demonstration, to the best of our knowledge, of tunable and Q-switched lasers based on diode-pumped Nd,Lu:CaF2 disordered crystal. A continuous tuning range of approximately 32 nm (1047–1079 nm) was obtained for tunable operations. A passively Q-switched laser was successfully achieved using a Cr4+:YAG as a saturable absorber. The shortest pulse width of 275 ns was obtained with a repetition rate of 1.85 kHz and corresponding peak power and single pulse energy of 189 W and 51.9 μJ, respectively.
