Abstract

Efficient diode pumping at wavelengths of 1.9 and 2.0 µm of a Cr2+:ZnSe laser with an output power of 105 mW and a slope efficiency of 35% with respect to the absorbed pump power is presented. In addition, Cr2+:CdMnTe has been laser diode pumped as well as operated in the continuous-wave regime, to the best of our knowledge for the first time.
