Abstract

Continuous-wave and mode-locked laser operations of Yb3+ in the disordered flux-grown NaY(MoO4)2 are demonstrated. The maximum slope efficiency achieved with Ti:sapphire and diode laser pumping is 63% and 38.6%, respectively. The continuous-wave tunability extends from 1005to1059nm, and laser pulses with a duration of 91fs at 1026nm are obtained at a repetition rate of 90MHz and an average power of 20mW under Ti:sapphire laser pumping. Yb3+-doped NaY(MoO4)2 is locally disordered and exhibits the largest absorption and emission cross sections known so far for tetragonal double tungstates or molybdates.
