Paper Abstract

We report on the new 1.06 micron laser material Cr3+,Nd3+:Y3(ScxAl2-x)Al3012(Cr,Nd:YSAG). To find a congruent melting composition for this mixed garnet, boules were grown with Sc concentrations between x=0.9 and x=1.6. With rods prepared from these Cr-sensitized Nd-crystals flashlamp pumped laser experiments have been performed. Until now slope efficiencies up to 6.4% are obtained at a repetition rate of 10 Hz.
