Abstract

A 1645 nm Er:YAG nonplanar ring oscillator, resonantly pumped by a 1470 nm laser diode, is reported. By using a 0.5%-doped Er:YAG nonplanar ring resonator, a 0.284 W single-frequency laser output at 1645 nm was obtained with a slope efficiency of 42.1%. The beam quality in x and y directions were 1.064 and 1.039, respectively.
