Abstract

We report what is believed to be the first resonantly pumped laser operation based on Er3+-doped disordered double tungstate single crystal. Efficient laser operation of an Er3+:NaY(WO4)2 laser at 1609.6nm was demonstrated with the naturally wideband, 20nm, InGaAsP/InP laser diode pumping at 1501nm. Laser wavelength tunability of 34nm was also demonstrated based on disorder-broadened emission features of Er3+:NaY(WO4)2 single crystal.
