Abstract

We report on the room-temperature spectroscopic properties and continuous-wave laser operation of a new Yb:LuVO4 crystal. The peak absorption cross section for the π-polarization is 8.42×1020cm2 at 985nm, and the stimulated emission cross section at 1020nm is 1.03×1020cm2. An output power of 0.36W at 1041nm was obtained with a slope efficiency of 47% by use of Ti:sapphire laser pumping. With diode pumping the output power reached 1.05W at the highest available incident pump power of 6.8W.
