Abstract

We present, to the best of our knowledge, the first report on the crystal growth, spectroscopic investigation, and laser performance of Yb-doped MgWO4 monoclinic crystal. A top seeded solution growth method was employed to develop a high quality monoclinic crystal. The spectroscopic properties were characterized in terms of absorption, photoluminescence, and lifetime measurement. Corresponding emission and gain cross-sections were calculated. Lasing behavior has been investigated in continuous-wave regime with the maximum output power of 2.52 W and a slope efficiency of 52.8%.
