Paper Abstract

This paper presents the development and narrow-linewidth characteristics of an optically-pumped vertical external-cavity surface-emitting laser emitting light near 1120 nm. The laser development is motivated by the need to achieve narrowlinewidth, frequency-stable laser emission near 280 nm for cooling of Mg+ ions. The laser is capable of emitting ~0.8 W at 1118.542 nm in a less than 300 kHz linewidth.
