Abstract

For the first time, to the best of our knowledge, Yb : S - FAP crystals have been intracavity pumped by a Nd : YVO 4 laser at 914 nm . This original pumping scheme allows efficient laser action on the three-level transition at 985 nm with 1.4 W output power. Second-harmonic generation is also presented with a total output power of 120 mW at 492.5 nm .
