Abstract

We report what we believe to be the first demonstration of cw and passively mode-locked Yb3+:YAlO3 (Yb:YAP) laser operation under diode pumping. Spectroscopic properties of a 0.6at.% Yb3+-doped YAP single crystal were investigated. Output power up to 1.2W with slope efficiency of 64.5% in the cw regime and 225fs pulse duration with average power of 0.8W from a mode-locked Yb:YAP laser were demonstrated.
