Paper Abstract

A pulsed erbium glass laser operated at 1533 nm using transverse pumping by four 12-bar laser diode subarrays at 932 nm. The laser ran in free-running and Q-switched modes, using both electro-optical and mechanical switches. With a LiNbO3 Pockels cell Q-switch, the erbium laser achieved 57 mJ energy per pulse, 26 ns pulsewidth and 3 Hz repetition rate.
