We report on a comparison of YAG and YLF crystals for Tm,Ho based CW laser systems operating at 2 mu m. As pump source we have used both a Ti:Al2O3 laser and an array of diode lasers in order to quantitatively assess the relevance of the pump beam spatial features on the 2 mu m laser performance. The results are compared with the predictions of a computer simulation using a rate equation model.

Abstract

We report on a comparison of YAG and YLF crystals for Tm,Ho based CW laser systems operating at 2 mu m. As pump source we have used both a Ti:Al2O3 laser and an array of diode lasers in order to quantitatively assess the relevance of the pump beam spatial features on the 2 mu m laser performance. The results are compared with the predictions of a computer simulation using a rate equation model.
