Paper Abstract

We demonstrate and investigate (theory, experiment) a peculiar mode of cw Yb3+:doped crystal laser operation when two emissions, at two independently tunable wavelengths, are simultaneously produced. Both emissions are generated from a single pumped volume and take place either in a single beam or in spatially separated beams. The laser employs original two-channel cavities that use a Passively Self-Injection Locking (PSIL) control to reduce the intracavity losses or a very simple for practical realization two near collinear channels cavity. A two-wavelength, single, longitudinal mode generation is also obtained. The results reported are based on the example of Yb3+:GGG laser and Yb3+:YAH laser. The lasers operate in the range 1023-1033 nm and 1030-1040 nm, respectively with a total output power of ~0.4 W.
