Abstract

Ti:sapphire presents unequaled tuning properties. However, because of a short lifetime, the energy cannot be stored in Ti3+ upper level, which makes this gain medium difficult to pump. Hence, the size, price, and complexity of femtosecond laser chains are partially driven by their pump source. We present a novel concept to pump Ti:sapphire, based on light-emitting diodes (LEDs), that gathers ruggedness, compactness, simplicity, and low price. By combining LEDs and a Ce:LuAG luminescent concentrator, we report the first LED-pumped Ti:sapphire laser, to the best of our knowledge. With 2240 blue LEDs (at 450 nm) in pulsed regime (10 Hz, 15 μs), the pump module has a maximum emission at 530 nm and delivers up to 20.9 mJ with an irradiance of 9.9  kW/cm2. This low-cost and compact pump system, among the brightest incoherent sources ever developed, enables laser emission in Ti:sapphire (32 μJ at 790 nm). The tunability of the laser is demonstrated between 755 and 845 nm. The double-pass small signal gain in the cavity is numerically simulated and measured to reach 1.066.

Fig. 3. (a) Laser output energy at 790 nm versus the pump energy delivered by the luminescent concentrator for 1.0%, 2.0%, and 2.8% transmission output couplers. Inset: laser spectrum in free running operation. (b) Laser and fluorescence temporal profiles in multimode operation. The LED pump pulse is represented by the gray curve. Insets: spatial profile of the laser overlaid with the fluorecsence of the 1 mm×1 mm emitting facet of the Ti:sapphire crystal. (c) Temporal and spatial profiles of the TEM00 mode.
