Paper Abstract

A resonantly pumped monolithic Ho:YAG nonplanar ring oscillator (NPRO) with single-frequency and dual-wavelength laser outputs is demonstrated. The Ho:YAG NPRO is resonantly pumped by a 1907-nm Tm:YLF laser. In single-frequency operation, the output power is 3.09 W, with a slope efficiency of 61% and an optical efficiency of 48% with respect to the pump power. Up to 10 W dual-wavelength laser output at 2091 and 2097 nm is also obtained from the Ho:YAG NPRO with the maximum pump power, with a slope efficiency of 61% with respect to the pump power.
