Abstract

For the first time, to the best of our knowledge, Yb:S-FAP crystals have been intracavity pumped by a Nd:YVO4 laser at 914nm. This original pumping scheme allows efficient laser action on the three-level transition at 985nm with 1.4W output power. Second-harmonic generation is also presented with a total output power of 120mW at 492.5nm.
