Abstract

A diode-pumped thin-disk laser based on Tm:KLu(WO4)2/KLu(WO4)2 epitaxies is realized. The emission is in the 1850–1945 nm spectral range for Tm-doping between 5 and 15 at. %. The maximum slope efficiency of 47% with respect to the absorbed power obtained with 5 at. % Tm:KLu(WO4)2/KLu(WO4)2 corresponds to a maximum output power of 6W in cw operation.
