Abstract

The lasing characteristics of Tm:LuAG at room temperature are reported. The maximum output power at 2.023-<i>μ</i>m wavelength is 4.91 W and the slope efficiency is 25.39%. The mode matching between pump mode and laser mode is optimized by changing the pump beam waist radius and its location. Different output couplers are used to realize the optimal laser output. The relationship between operation temperature and output power is also discussed.
