Paper Abstract

We report what we believe is the first demonstration of a continuous-wave Nd:YLF laser under in-band diode pumping at 908 nm. The laser produced the maximum average output power of ~750 mW at 1047 nm. The maximum slope and optical-to-optical efficiencies were 39.5% and 64.6%, respectively, with respect to the absorbed pump power. The maximum output power was limited by the available absorbed pump power and not the thermal effects. The results that are presented in this work are preliminary and further work is in progress to improve the efficiency of the laser system.
