Abstract

For the first time to the authors’ knowledge, continuous-wave laser emission of the stoichiometric crystal KYb(WO<sub>4</sub>)<sub>2</sub> was achieved at 1068 nm. The 125-μm-thin sample was directly water cooled and pumped at 1025 nm by a Ti:sapphire laser. The maximum output power at room temperature was 20 mW.
