Paper Abstract

The introduction of a 532 nm Nd:YAG beam can be used to increase the slope efficiency of an ultraviolet Ce:LiSAF laser pumped at 266 nm by a factor of 1.4 by bleaching the color centers. The addition of a co-dopant, specifically sodium ions at a concentration of 2% in the melt also increases slope efficiency by a factor of 1.2.
