High-power diode-pumped cryogenically cooled Yb:CaF2 laser with extremely low quantum defect

Abstract : High-power diode-pumped laser operation at 992-993nm under a pumping wavelength of 981 of 986nm is demonstrated with Yb:CaF2 operating at cryogenic temperature (77K), leading to extremely low quantum defects of 1.2% and 0.7%, respectively. An average output power of 33Whas been produced with an optical efficiency of 35%. This represents, to the best of our knowledge, the best laser performance ever obtained at such low quantum defects on intense laser lines.
