Abstract

A study of the polarization characteristic of a Co:MgF2 laser with a 1320-nm YAG pumping laser at room temperature is reported. The thresholds, output energies, and efficiencies of the laser are given at the various polarization states. The more intensive emission is in the π-polarization pump laser and σ-polarization laser operation. Performances of the Co:MgF2 lasers are similar for the polarized and unpolarized laser pumping along the optical axis of the crystal.
