Paper Abstract

Tetragonal calcium rare-earth aluminates, CaLnAlO4, are attractive laser host crystals. The emission of Nd3+ ions at 1.3- 1.4 μm due to the 4F3/24I13/2 transition is of interest for medicine, fiber optics, and light conversion. We report on compact Nd:CaLnAlO4 lasers using a plane-plane cavity. With an a-cut 0.8 at.% Nd:CaYAlO4 crystal diode-pumped at 802 nm, a maximum continuous-wave output power of 365 mW was achieved at 1.365 & 1.390 μm corresponding to the σ-polarization. The 4F3/24I13/2 laser performance of the Nd:CaLnAlO4 crystals was compared to that from a monoclinic Nd:KGd(WO4)2. At the 4F3/24I11/2 transition (1.08 μm), a Nd:CaYAlO4 micro-laser generated multi-watt output (>4 W) with a slope efficiency of 39%.
