Paper Abstract

Using an optical cavity, we demonstrate enhanced pump light absorption for laser cooling of solids. A Fabry-Perot cavity containing Yb:ZBLAN glass shows enhancement of resonant absorption by a factor of 11 compared to the double-pass configuration. This corresponds to 85% absorption of the incident laser power.
