Abstract

We report, for what we believe to be the first time, a Ce:LiCAF laser pumped by ultraviolet radiation obtained by sum-frequency mixing of the green and the yellow output from a copper-vapor laser. The 7-kHz pulse repetition frequency free-lasing Ce:LiCAF laser yielded a maximum output power of 530  mW, with a slope efficiency of 32%, from a pump power of 1.9  W. With a single prism tunability from 280.5 to 316  nm was achieved.
