Paper Abstract

The concept and demonstration of a 2.1-micron holmium laser directly pumped with a 2.0-micron laser are described. Experiments and calculations which explore the potential of this low quantum defect laser system are presented. The new technique exhibits higher gains, reduced upconversion losses, reduced temperature sensitivity, and lower thermal loading.
