Paper Abstract

We demonstrated for the first time three-level operation at 981 nm with a Yb:KYW crystal inserted into the cavity of a diode pumped Nd:YVO4 laser operating at 914 nm. We achieved an output power up to 1.4 W at 981 nm. Moreover we demonstrated that crystal heating favored laser emission at 981 nm rather than emission at higher wavelength.
