Abstract

Laser operation of a composite ceramic Er:YAG rod is demonstrated at 1645nm with a slope efficiency of 56.9% under resonant pumping at 1532.3nm. This is believed to be the first reported composite ceramic Er:YAG laser and also the first reported use of a tape cast technique for producing laser ceramics.
