Paper Abstract

We review spectroscopic properties, basic laser parameters, and efficient lasing of Pr-doped fluoride materials. Continuous output powers up to 600 mW in the visible spectral range as well as intracavity frequency doubling to the UV spectral region under semiconductor laser pumping is reported. We achieved powers of 600 mW in the visible spectral region and 360 mW of UV radiation corresponding to a conversion efficiency of 61% with an optical-to-optical efficiency of 22%.
