Abstract

We report on continuous-wave lasing of Yb 3 + at room temperature in the noncentrosymmetric RbTiOPO 4 crystal, codoped with Nb 5 + , for all three possible polarizations. A maximum output power of 154 mW at 1050 nm was obtained for an absorbed power of 386 mW . The highest slope efficiency reached 60 % and the lowest threshold (with respect to the absorbed power) was 18 mW . The laser was tunable from 1009 to 1081 nm .
