Abstract

An efficient diode-pumped Yb : Y 3 Ga 5 O 12 (Yb:YGG) laser was demonstrated by using a high-quality Yb:YGG crystal grown by the optical floating zone method. Continuous-wave laser power up to 2.65 W had been obtained under an incident pump power of 6.71 W at 970 nm , corresponding to an optical-to-optical efficiency of 39.5% and maximum slope efficiency of 84.5%. A modeling calculation of the Yb:YGG laser was also performed, and the theoretical results were consistent with the experimental results.
