Paper Abstract

The 970 nm radiation generated by a 4 W, 0.1 mm wide, InGaAs laser diode has been used to pump a Cr4+:YAG laser. With 3.3 W incident on the 10 mm long Cr:YAG crystal a maximum CW output of 90 mW has been obtained. Inserting a single plate birefringent tuner within the laser resonator permitted the laser wavelength to be tuned between 1380 and 1495 nm, with a peak output power of 11 mW at 1450 nm.
