Abstract

We report the development of a continuous-wave, room-temperature Cr2+:ZnS laser that is compact and tunable over 700 nm. The laser is pumped by a diode-pumped Er-fiber laser and generates 0.7 W of linearly polarized radiation at 2.35 µm, at up to 40% slope efficiency. Cr2+:ZnS directly diode-pumped at 1.6 µm yields polarized radiation that is tunable over 400 nm at up to 25 mW of output power. A comparison of Cr2+:ZnS with Cr:ZnSe (70 mW, 350 nm) in a similar setup is given. As opposed to Cr:ZnSe, the Cr:ZnS laser is intrinsically polarized. Finally, we observe sensitization of the output radiation by a few milliwatts of the visible (470–500-nm) and near-infrared (740–770-nm) radiation.

(a) Output characteristics of different Cr:ZnS samples under Er-fiber laser pumping and 10% output coupling. (b) Tuning of the PVT sample under Er-fiber laser pumping. The filled and open circles refer to different mirror sets, centered at 2400 and 2100 nm, respectively. The solid curve shows air transmission, normalized to the resonator length.
