Abstract

Single-mode operation of a continuous-wave Er:Yb:phosphate glass laser pumped at 980 nm by a InGaAs index-guided diode laser has been achieved for what is to our knowledge the first time. The maximum output power obtained at 1540 nm is 10 mW, and the width of the spectral line is less than 15 kHz.

Near-field profiles along two orthogonal axes: (a) the horizontal axis, (b) the vertical axis. For both curves the Gaussian fit is also shown (dotted curves) and gives a correlation coefficient of 0.97. The calculated value of M2 is 1.09 for both curves.

Self-homodyne measurement of the laser line-width of the Er:Yb:phosphate glass laser performed with a delay line of 4.5 km (t0 = 22 μs). The measured linewidth (−3 dB) is 15 kHz; the measurement time was 24.1 s, and the resolution bandwidth was 300 Hz.
