Abstract

A directly diode-laser-pumped Ti : Al 2 O 3 laser is demonstrated. Using a 1 W , 452 nm GaN diode laser, 19 mW of cw output power is achieved in a potentially portable format. Pumping at this short wavelength induces a loss at the laser wavelength that is not seen for the more typical green pump wavelengths. This effect is characterized and discussed.
